TV show takes viewers inside historic homes

TV show takes viewers inside historic homes

July 06, 2006|by JULIE E. GREENE

Huckleberry Hall was in such poor condition 16 years ago that when Kristin and Rob Grosh considered buying it, they put tarps in the attic to preserve what was left despite a partially missing roof.

They did buy the Germanic 2 1/2-story stone home that dates to about 1780.

They also did a lot of the renovation work themselves.

The results are on display in the first episode of the second season of "Historic Homes of Washington County."

The first episode of the season, featuring Huckleberry Hall northeast of Leitersburg and two other homes, premiered Wednesday night on Antietam Cable Television. The episode will re-air on Antietam Cable's Local Information Channel 19 at 7 p.m. Friday.

New episodes will air Aug. 2, Sept. 4, Oct. 2 and Nov. 1 with each being re-run at 7 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during their respective months.

This season features 14 homes and Lehman's Mill, says producer Dave Dull.

Dull says it's a shame when people put a lot of work into such historic homes and no one gets to see the result. This series gives the public an inside look at the homes and renovations they've undergone, Dull says.

This season includes looks at Tipahato in Cascade, Pry's Mill in Sharpsburg, Rock Spring Farm near Huyetts Crossroads and the home of local Civil War historian Dennis Frye.

Season one, including the two-part special on the homes of Antietam National Battlefield, is available on DVD for $24.95. DVDs are available at Antietam Cable's office, 1000 Willow Circle in Hagerstown, or by calling 240-420-2096. VHS copies can be ordered.
