This is a Fascinating house on a tiny street in the Middle of our Little town . There was supposedly a Girls Seminary on the street years ago but it is nowhere to be seen now. The house porch faces sideways , so I have to assume that it looked down the hill , which now has houses next to each other all the way down and that the Vista was Once beautiful . The Little Road now goes to the Town Parking Lot !!.
It has a Turret or Widows Lookout which is very Spooky , because there is No water or coast-line near our town .We are inland .So what did they look down to?
It has Always held so much mystery for me even though I have gone by it thousands of times to get through and into town but I still always turn my head to look at it , always ..
The Owner knew just what they wanted and built a Beautiful and Expensive home for the times .There appear to be 3 floors and many rooms..
Oddly now, there is no yard , no where to look out and no place to keep horses or park a car . My imagination runs wild ,guessing about what it used to look like , where all the rest of it is and what life was like in the town when there were just dirt roads, horse carriages and few people . And especially who First lived in this house, way out in the country.. Now it is a very thriving town with lots of peoples and homes.
This is just the Porch , but I have painted the whole house as well , always trying to project my sense of Mystery into it .
To see Details of the House click on it .It seems very loved even now .
