layers of paint and wallpaper

We recently bought a house built in 1906. Over the years the walls have become layered w/ paint and wallpaper atop one another. The visible surface looks absolutely terrible! It is near impossible to remove the paint/wallpaper mix. The solution we propose is to rough up the entire surface and skip trowel the wall giving it a texture. Any ideas? Suggestions? Similar experiences?
