It also has enough brick to rival a European city. Brick houses, brick churches, brick streets and brick sidewalks.
And so many stately, nineteenth century homes. This one is across the street from where we are staying. The beautiful porch takes my breath away. I wonder how many fireplaces it has because there are at least five chimneys.
Our sprawling brick rental house was built in the 1830's and is mysteriously guarding its stories of history. (Notice the purple Victorian in the background.)
There is a fireplace in every room of the newest part. Heating a home with these would be a lot of firewood and fire tending!
The bedroom opens out to the patio and garden views. Just what I need!
The house also has a former slaves quarters. Didn't I say mysterious?
Most importantly it has a fully equipped kitchen where I am working away at baking wedding cake. After a few glitches today I am back on track and looking forward to the rest of the week.
