The Biehl House was designed by Marie Biehl and built by Bill Matherson in 1969. It is furnished with 165 furniture pieces, 485 accessories, 21 dolls and is 6’1″ tall, 48″ wide and 28″ deep. The windows and doors are hand-made. The flooring was hand-cut and fitted — the ballroom floor (top floor) has 1300 pieces.

The Biehl House was created around the concept of John Hayes, who was an ambassador to England. This house is a partial replica of his home. Hayes is in the library on the third floor — the sash indicates that he was knighted by the King and Queen of England. The house is Georgian, from the early 1800s.

NOTE: There are some “hot spots” on the image below that will show some wonderful details of various rooms if you click on that part of the house. One shows the Lady’s Bedroom on the second floor and the other provides more detail of the Living Room on the first floor of the Biehl House. Additional clicks will show views of the Kitchen and the Den.
