The Rhodus House

Summer, 2013
Betty and Jack Rhodus have spent decades collecting and selling some of the best early furniture and domestic items I've ever seen. Plus their southern Ohio home ~ a reproduction 18th century saltbox and a reassembled early log cabin behind the house ~ perfectly reflects the period and furnishings they both love. This article was an unusual opportunity for me because I'd done an Early American Life article on the Rhoduses several years ago, and this one gave me a chance to renew a friendship and find out what this talented couple's up to today.
