Stripping/restoring woodwork painted with milkpt

We have purchased a 1901 (possibly earlier) Victorian style house. It has beautiful decorative woodwork throughout the house. Someone for some unknown reason has chosen to paint a great deal of the wood battle ship gray. When we try to remove the paint the wood looks horrible. Extremely pickled! My husband said he thinks it was painted at some time with a milk paint. Is there any way to strip the milk paint and restore the wood? I would love to have all the wood match and I really like the way the natural/stained wood looks. Thanks!
