Its present owners occasionally host house concerts (house shows) in the living and dining rooms, and in the summer, a show will occasionally be staged in the spacious backyard. Initially, the house venue was given the nickname "Fort Forthright" by David Sampson, a tenant and musician, but the name did not stick. The hosts seek to make both artists and audiences as comfortable as possible, and often supplement the live entertainment with a little beverage. Attendance for a house show at this snug venue has peaked at about forty-five individuals at an outdoor backyard concert.
