Thursday is "This Old House Day"



The Daniel W. Baxter house, located at 15-17 Phipps Street, is an example of an 1870s double Italianate style house. The detail work around the windows is worth a second look. I'm not a fan of the present color . . . too close to the blue of the sky. This must have been a grand house in its day.

This house went from ugly to beautiful. It used to be run down and brown. I was glad this house got some attention. Even if it is the color of the sky.
