Thursday is "This Old House Day"

[click image to enlarge]

This very attractive early colonial revival house at 156 Adams Street, is being refurbished to its Georgian, Federal, and Greek Revival elegance of 1900. This land once belonged to Charles Francis Adams, son of John Quincy Adams, the sixth President.

I am acquainted with the family who bought this house and is doing the renovation. I havae not been inside the house but I know they have worked meticulously to keep the interior as authentic as possible. No detail has been spared. I'm sure it will be very beautiful
