Generations after an informal open-door policy for families in a Metn village saw locals and some of the country's main political figures regularly pass through its doors, a restored heritage house in Mtein has opened to the public once again.Muriel's 96-year-old great aunt Saydeh Sarrouf is the eldest of 17 siblings, all of whom lived in Beit Jedde with their father Suleiman. When the house became too small for the family, they moved. Saydeh remembers how her father's house was always open to the entire village, like most houses in the community. After the family moved out, Saydeh's sister Hanne remained in the house, often hosting the women of the village there, Muriel recalls.
