SOME OF THE HOUSE STYLES IN MY TOWN
The second picture is a house one of my brother's and sister-in-law use to own. They had the first floor and four apartments in the rest of the house. I understand there are just two apartments in it now. My brother and sister-in-law sold it in 1973, when they moved to Florida. Note the widow's peek on the top.
I could tell a history on most of these houses since I grew up in this town. I will skip to pictures 7 & 8. That house was owned my the Sampson Family and it was taken the best of care of. It had been
sold and over the years, it had been turned into an apartment house and not taken care of. Someone bought it and was going to restore it, but not much has been done. It is an historic house as you can see by the sign below the house picture. I wanted that house in here as it may be torn down in the near future.
Houses in pictures 9 and 10 were built as mansions and are still one family residents today. The last house I have three pictures of: the house, the design on the house and the side. It is obviously on a corner and thought it was really nice.
Hope you enjoy these houses. I am getting use to the new camera, but still have a way to go.
