Spring seems like it has arrived. Either that or March wants to make nice before going out like a lion. As the temperature climbed to 64°f (18°c) I’m getting ready to start working on the projects that were put off until spring, the ones that are normally scheduled for spring and the ones that winter left for me. I did a fair amount of running around, but not in search of doors. Instead, I snapped a few pictures of some doors that I passed along the way.
Some of these have an interesting history, but mainly local stuff. Not the kind of history that people come from out of town to learn about.
These doors are being offered as part of Norm Frampton’s amazing weekly blog-hop called Thursday Doors. Each week, Norm reaches to to door lovers all over the world and invites them to share doors with him and with all of us. If you have doors to share, or if you just like looking at doors, head on up to Norm’s place.
Old Farm School 1796
Unlikely I’ll be touring this place anytime soon.
I drive by this old school and historical society every time I come home from Lowes. It’s closed, but I stopped for a look around.

View of the trash-to-energy plant from under the Charter Oak Bridge.
Switchyard (and door) for the trash-to-energy plant.
This is Hartford’s trash-to-energy plant. Or town’s trash is incinerated here.
This once was a fire station in nearby Enfield, CT. Now it’s an American Legion Post.
Front doors, Enfield Congregational Church
I pass this Congregational Church in Enfield at least once a week, but I never stopped for a picture.

Maddie and I were surprised to see this new gate across the path we walk.
I stopped into a antique / used furniture shop just to look around. They have some doors for sale, and one that has been made into a piece of furniture.

I love the gable door on the Fannie R. Gabriel History Center.
