Russian Bishop's House

I drew the Russian Bishop's house and it is now on Google Earth.  The Russian Bishop's house is a registered landmark of the National Historical Park.  A quote from the website on the Bishop's house: "The Bishop's House was completed in 1842 and was the center of Russian Orthodox Church authority in a diocese that stretched from California to Siberian Kamchatka." The house is the oldest of four surviving structures from the Russian American times; they are scattered about and I'm having trouble finding where they are located.
Here is a photo of the drawing I made compared to a photo of the real thing.
Here are some photos of the interior of the house.

Here is a 3D view of the drawing.  (Because I love the 3D link thing)
