Hometown Adventure


I recently took a walk around my town, specifically to take photos of some of the beautiful architecture and old homes, wrought iron fencing and gardens, etc. I'm on a quest to rediscover all my town has to offer and really look at things with "new" eyes. It's kind of amazing what's really out there...waiting to be discovered, if we just take the time to look. Here's some of what I found:

A "secret" garden



A "hidden" mansion


Downtown Architecture


The home of my town's first millionaire. Built in 1853, and now the site of the county historical museum.



Old cobblestones beneath the crumbled blacktop

...and one of the lovely, tree-lined streets.

I hope you enjoyed this short tour, and maybe it will inspire you to take a "new" look around your own hometown.


Enjoy your weekend, everyone! 
Until next time,
Cindy

Hi, Cindy- welcome back, dear!!

You have been big-time on my mind lately, so glad you posted - was just getting ready to find your old email.

How ya feeling? All going ok?

Love your little hometown tour - the secret garden is always a neat find.

Would still love you to come down for a visit if you are up to it? This is really perfect outdoor tea weather, hint hint.

Hugs. Welcome back, I missed you!

Beautiful tour! Fall is my favorite too. I'm glad you're feeling well. I just reread a comment you left on my blog a year ago, and had to come say hello.
