Hatheway House

One of New Baltimore's most prominent citizens, Gilbert Hatheway, built this mansion in 1860... After the home left the Hatheway family, it was used as a bed and breakfast known as "The Firs". The house lasted until 2005.

Her colour pretty well rules out many of the milking breeds as this girl's ancestors, and the horns rule out most of the rest. I believe we have an example of the Milking Shorthorn, once quite common as a "family" cow.
