The results are in! We found very thick accretions of exterior paint while we were on site, so we were able to get great cross-sections. The cross sections not only tell us what the original color was, but they also give us an idea how the house has been painted throughout its nearly 200 years of existence.
BCA has identified the original paint color to be buff,
as shown here (note that the actual shade may not be
accurately represented on all computer monitors).
