Neighborhood Tour

Saturday after my defensive driving class let out early (remember that ticket I complained about a while back?), I decided to take a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood with my camera. Everybody else is showing off their neighborhoods, so I figure it's my turn now.

I've added several thumbnail photos to my Town page. On my walk, I discovered my new favorite house in town. I can't believe I've never noticed it before, since it's directly in front of ours behind the tennis court. I couldn't get a good photo of the front because of the big magnolias, but it has so much character and fabulous gingerbread. In my Walking and Driving Guide to Historic Eutaw, Alabama, the house is called the Murphy-Henderson house. The first owner of my house was married to a Murphy before she was married to a Dunlap. Hmmm, wonder if they were related? The houses do have a similar style, though mine is on a smaller scale.



There are also quite a few houses that need help ...



Or are in the process of being helped ...

Thanks for the pictures! I love to see the context of these houses. The neighborhoods are just as interesting to me...

Kristen,

Great photos - Teague will drool over the columns on Aunt Judy's house, he loves that type of architecture!

John, me too. I have adored spying on everybody else's neighborhoods.

Mindy, I need to go on a broader photo-taking excursion than just our street. There are lots of other Greek Revivals here and also our "signature" style, the Raised Creole Cottage.
