This week I’m wandering around California, Missouri with the following Thursday Doors entry. The hubs and I were on our way to do a pick-up for our Saturday night date and this town was in our path. The pizza joint we frequent was behind quite a few minutes and so this detour helped us kill some time. Before I get to the photos, I found out this Queen Anne style home has just recently (June 2021) been featured in a magazine called Old House Journal. The following excerpt is from that article. Link included here if you’d like to read more about it.

The local landmark was built in 1898 by Charles A. Eitzen, the eldest son of Charles D. Eitzen, a Civil War hero, wealthy merchant, and prominent citizen of Hermann, Missouri, a German community established in 1837 along the banks of the Missouri River. At just under 8,000 square feet, the house contained 21 rooms, nine fireplaces, and a full basement, as well as a carriage house, all sitting on 1.5 acres surrounded by a stone and wrought iron fence. It was also the first house in Moniteau County to have running water.

The gallery of the home puts my photos to shame, but regardless, door lovers will all agree how much better it is to see these homes in person rather than in a photo. Nonetheless, I hope you will enjoy the selection I’m sharing for this week’s doors.

That does it for this Thursdays Doors post. Please take some time to visit Dan at No Facilities for more doors from around the world. He will be happy to direct your path.
