Thursday is "This Old House Day"



I have enjoyed walking by this handsome 1920 house at 107 Winthrop Avenue. The fabulous wrap around porch caught my eye first. The new paint color really shows off the character and details of this great old house. I would have guessed this house to be older than 1920, but that is what the records say.

Thanks to Stella's owner for this special request.

Thanks QDP. Yes, the house is likely older (1870's) but city records date it differently...perhaps when an addition was added. It is one of the gems of the hill!

A gem, indeed.
