One sign that a city has lost control is when the blight that defines bad neighborhoods spreads to good ones, and even permeates institutions once thought to be sacred. We're now seeing this in Baltimore's Shot Tower Park. It houses two historic landmarks - the Baltimore Phoenix Shot Tower (once the nation's tallest structure); and a 1790s home once occupied by the city's 2nd mayor. Rather than a tourist site, the park is a homeless encampment and mini skid row, with litter everywhere. When I visited recently, the tower had been tagged with graffiti, and somebody was urinating on the home. The park is in the historic Jonestown area, which has similar conditions throughout. _________________________________________________ #baltimore #baltimoremd #baltimorecity #baltimorecitymd #baltimoreblight #urbandecay #urbanblight #historicpreservation #downtownbaltimore #shottower #shottowerpark #jonestownbaltimore
This is the Charles E. Beach House, a fine example of a rare Shingle Style home and perhaps the only one of its kind in West Hartford and the surrounding area. It hasn’t been on the market in decades but now someone has the opportunity to assume ownership of this stunning National Register property. The uniformity of the cedar shingles covering the 8,400 sq ft home highlight the various angles and architectural features, which is a hallmark of Shingle Style. What is most outstanding about this home is the interior, with three full stories, over 17 kinds of wood utilized, seven fireplaces, and the most incredible suspended staircase I have ever seen. Check my Stories for interior images, and a link to the listing! Or contact @debortega3 @lisacampoteam @williamraveis to get more information or to see the property for yourself!

A photo I took of the George Moss Stoney House in Beaufort, the house was built circa 1838
One room done and way too many to go!
Fall Colors Odessa, Delaware ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (Photo by Christina Vitabile) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Who can blame this magnificent old tree for photo-bombing an equally grand 19th century dwelling on the main thoroughfare through Odessa?  Odessa is a leafy town, with grand brick mansions as well as quirky and more traditional clapboard homes reflecting the changing tastes in local architecture over 300+ years. The town's colonial name was Cantwell's Bridge, later renamed for the Ukrainian port in the 19th century.  #delmarvahistory #autumn #oldtrees #oldtree #autumnleaves #thanksgiving #fallcolors #americanarchitecture #vernaculararchitecture #oldhouses #americanlandscape #delmarva #roadsidedelmarva #smallwonder #firststate #delaware #colonialtown #delawarelandscapes #americanhistory #roadside #deservetopreserve #historicpreservation #historicodessa #treehugger
🍂 Before winter sets in I wanted to share this truly festive house project all decked out in freshly painted Ottosson Linseed Oil Paint. The doorway and window trim are painted with Ottosson Iron Oxide Black and the siding is painted with Ottosson Falu Red. 🍁 This customer carefully removed all the old paint with infrared heat (The Silent Paint Remover) before finishing with breathable, Linseed Oil Paint that nourishes the porous wood surface and does not trap moisture that causes rot/deterioration.  The color combo is so excellent I sorta swooned when I first saw it! Wait until you see the overall project as a wonderfully creative approach was taken to this home where certain sections were built or added onto the main structure over the course of the building’s long life. To be continued tomorrow... #oldhouselove #restore #restoration #historic #woodisgood #wood #historicpreservation #linseedoil #purifiedlinseedoil #linseedoilpaint #materialsmatter #solventfree #frontdoor #doorway #exterior #exteriordesign #streetview #project #diy #painting #paint #design #archilovers #architecture #homeimprovement #oldhouse #home #color #homedesign
My visit to @frontierculturemuseum reminded me of my visit to @wealddownmuseum with the @theattinghamtrust Summer School. A range of early buildings have been reconstructed on the site from this 17th century English farmhouse to 18th century German farm buildings to a 1740s American farmhouse. Suffice to say that early frontier life was not for the faint of heart. #theaccidentalpreservationist
Sudeley Castle, Cotswolds, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Repost: @visitengland & @cocochlo382 ⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️ I chanced upon this beautiful picture of Sudeley Castle and wanted to share it with you, especially if you’re a Tudor fan 🌷The first mention of a castle here can be traced to the 10th century 🌷 The Sudeley Castle was granted to Richard III by his brother King Edward IV. 🌷Henry VIII along with his second wife Anne Boleyn stayed here briefly. Their daughter Elizabeth I also travelled to Sudeley. 🌷 The most exciting thing about Sudeley Castle is probably that Henry VIII’s sixth and last wife Katherine Parr is buried here. Her love letters to John Seymour(a man she later married) are also at this Castle.  Are you a Tudor fan? Comment below
Perched high on a bluff 20+ miles from the nearest ranger station and facing away from the mainland, the South Point Light (1937) is the dinkier and lesser known of our two lighthouses. The lumber was cut and labeled on the mainland and hauled up here by mule train. It was an active aid to navigation until the solar battery died last year and the Coast Guard tender didn’t want to hike out a new one. Stabilizing this puppy and putting it back into service is one of my priorities for 2019, just cause it’s so dang cool and there aren’t many of these left. #woodshacklighthouse #channelislandsnationalpark #parkranger #preservationist #historicpreservation

I have been so inspired recently by the wonderful architecture and history of my city. The beautiful buildings that have fallen and risen up and down Shockoe Hill forever show me the fragility of the built environment if meaning Is forgotten. There is something special about this city. Perhaps it’s it’s perfect positioning between climates, physical geographies and cultures. Or Maybe it is it’s isolation from other major urban areas. But it’s cobble stones and honey suckle, rivers and swamps, hills and ravines, wealth and poverty, past and present, present a realness that is equally haunting, uncomfortable, humbling, and wonderful. . . . #rva #visitvirginia #richmond #cityplannjng #historicpreservation #art #drawing #sketch #jamesriver #readmore #explore #love #hometown #stories #architecture #south #pastandpresent #wonderful #real
