Basement in an 1850's home (with an older bathroom - clawfoot tub and all). Why a bathroom in the basement?
May seem like an odd question, but this is a large 3 story home built in 1850. Tucked in the basement (which has many rooms), behind a wall is a bathroom (toilet paper holder still on the wall). Would a family use the bathroom downstairs? Perhaps, the servants???
