After removing numerous layers of wallpaper and disconnecting the claw- foot tub, we installed new wallpaper, floor covering, and even purchased a replica water-close with its wall- mounted tank.

KITCHEN - (1990-1991-1992)

Perhaps the biggest.project for the Thompson House renovation was the remaking of the Victorian kitchen. The original room had been partitioned in the mid 30's to allow Dale his 'bar". The resulting corridor-sized rooms were too small for tours and useless for other uses as well. Here, we basically gutted the entire room, attached new drywall, installed wainscoting, flooring, wallpaper and acquiring suitable circa 1900 fixtures for display.


Beginning in 1991, the Ohio Dept. of Transportation began contruction of the long- dreaded bypass through East Liverpool. The project caused the loss of the Third Street stone walls, removal of the wrought-iron rence and, worst of all, a twenty foot earthen embankment that cut the southwest corner of the Thompson property. Extensive plantings were provided by ODOT to soften the blow.

The west side of the house before ODOT began their mess. People tend to forget there was once a ally there as the above photos show.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
