Welcome to Thursday Doors! This is a weekly challenge for people who love doors and architecture to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos, drawings, or other images or stories from around the world. If you’d like to join us, simply create your own Thursday Doors post each (or any) week and then share a link to your post in the comments below, anytime between 12:01 am Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time). If you like, you can add our badge to your post.
This is a short post, mostly pictures. I ran out of room in last week’s gallery, so I saved my favorite house (the Leornard Fox house – yellow one in the gallery) for this week. I found pictures of this house in the National Registry of Historic Places nomination form, but most of what was written was about other houses where something was “not like” this example. What I was able to determine is that the sculpted corner boards may be original. Then again, they may not be. There may have been a pediment window in the upper portion of the front gable, which was sided over by more modern material.
In some way, shape or form, this house grew from its original state. I was also unable to find an earlier picture that included the garage. Given the shape of the garage, I am guessing that the stone portion is original, but I have no evidence to support that. In any case, what I know of today’s houses is from the NHRP form, and included in the captions.
I hope you enjoy today’s gallery and the doors linked here by the other participants. I will be unable to respond to comments and / or visit the other blogs for large portions of the day. I will visit the other blogs, but I am giving myself the opportunity to visit between midnight Thursday and noon Saturday. It’s spring, and other duties are calling.
