Welcome to the Seafoam Palace

• by Julia Solis

It was love at first sight. We stumbled across this building on Craigslist, checked it out on impulse, got friends to pitch in, and decided to take the plunge. The interior, with its magnificent wood, plasterwork and fine craftsmanship, now peeling, flaking and warping from too many winters in abandonment, seemed already perfect. Like a beautiful shipwreck crashed on the shores of Kercheval and Beaufait: The Seafoam Palace of Arts and Amusements.
