The Goodnight House

April 26, 2012

“We have one description that the floor was covered with buffalo hides and there were various paintings on the wall. There were five fireplaces in the house and three of them stem from one major chimney … one opens into the living room, one into the bedroom, and one into the receiving room.” -Montie Hubbard Goodin

“It opens on the outside to what was known as the sleeping porch. It was a beautiful view … You can look across the countryside into the canyons. It screened in and the stories are that Mr. Goodnight slept out there. He had spent so many years on the open range, he really enjoyed sleeping outside, and I don’t suppose a hard bed meant anything to him.” -Montie Hubbard Goodin
