Ever seen a 100-year-old fish before?

This large fish hangs in the bar of the Lemp Mansion. It was caught in the early 1900s by Lillian Lemp and given as a gift to Charles Lemp. It’s hard to tell, but it’s several feet long.

On either side of it are stained glass portraits of Billy Lemp and Lillian Lemp. (You can see better photos of them both on Roshini’s site.)

The bar was once Charles Lemp’s bedroom and he killed his dog and himself in this room. Many people have reported having a dog brush up against them while they were in this room. We did not get so lucky as to be visited by the dog.
