East Lake Historical Society's Second Historical Home Award
was awarded to the Vanderhoof Family for the the Log Cabin located in Mount Plymouth
East Lake Historical Society's First Historical Home Award
was awarded to the Fransbergen Family for the Old Rainey House located in Sorrento
Their house was built by William Hawkins in 1886. Much of the house was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in 1903. The original roof was made of wood shingles so after the fire they built a new roof over the original one.
The old “George Rainey” plaque still hangs on the front door.
The Fransbergens did a lot of renovation, taking care to preserve the original windows, paneling, floors, crown molding, cabinets and much more before they moved into their beautiful home in 2009.
