Thursday is "This Old House" Day

Today's "old house" is my favorite Romanesque "house of knowledge" designed by Henry Hobson Richardson, funded by the Crane family, and dedicated in 1880.  It is Quincy's magnificent winter castle.  It is one of the 150 favorite works of Great Buildings Online and you can read an excellent account of this H.H. Richardson library masterpiece HERE.

Looks like a building on a college campus or a chapel.
