Bateman House

[click image to enlarge]

This is the William R. Bateman House located at 148 Monroe Rd., in the Hospital Hill section of Quincy. It is an exquisite example of the Queen Anne period of architecture from 1875-1899. This private residence is listed in the National Register of Historical Places. Isn't it a beauty?

I Couldn't help but notice the Patriots banner displayed outside the back entrance. I guess they'll have to put that away for next year.

Yes, it's a beauty. I find it hard to believe that it's that old, it's so well-maintained.

Glad you liked the trucks at the corner. I wondered if anyone would notice the No Trucks sign--neat!

And I won't rub it in too much, but, "Yea, Giants!" Couldn't resist, since I'm a Mississippian--the Manning connection runs deep for us from the Magnolia State.

Nice shot ... beautiful house.

Boo Hoo, Pats! I almost shed tears, till my brother told me it was only a game. My son said he was having a break-down.
