The Belshaw Mansion – Project 365

Today I visited the Belshaw Mansion on 705 E Street in Antioch. The home was constructed for state senator Charles M. Belshaw. It was later sold to state assemblyman Robert Easley, then to the Baldocchis, who divided it into apartments for their family members. The house has been restored by it current owners to the original inside configuration. However, looking at the original structure one can see that the roof, especially the tower roof have undergone major structure changes. I like the old structure over the current castle look.
