Doorbell Discovery

There was an exciting discovery at Rancho Del Lindbergs over the weekend! While trying to fix our doorbell we discovered that the original fittings were stamped with the date Oct. 1954. We’ve had a helluva time trying to date our house thanks to sloppy & conflicting paperwork. We knew it was built between 1954-1956 but the doorbell seem to confirm that the house was originally built in ’54. Hopefully that will help us research our home even further since I’m curious to know more about its history.

The original doorbell was a NuTone that was a dark brown color (see pic above) but unfortunately the previous owners decided to paint it white. Hope to find a copy of the original bell or something even more stylish to replace it in the near future.
