Old Telephone Stand at The Brenham House

Do you remember when....
the telephone was on a stand like this and when it rang 
you had to be home in order to answer it?
Do you remember having to run to the phone to beat your brothers or sisters from answering it first?
Boy,  how things have changed.  
Our lives are now so fast paced.  Take some time to get 
away and visit us at The Brenham House for a chance to breathe and take things a little bit slower!
