    I have admired and enjoyed this historical example of early English architecture in the Adam Thoroughgood House. When I visited Stratford-Upon-Avon in England, I was pleasantly surprised to see the same style main room and fireplace, on a larger scale, in the house where William Shakespeare was supposedly born about 1564, aproximately some 200 years earler than the Adam Thoroughgood House.
