Posts Tagged ‘historic houses’

My husband took Friday off for my birthday and we went to visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s studio and home in Oak Park.  More of that in other posts.  Naturally that meant that Friday was the coldest day of an almost two-week span:  39, cloudy, windy, and chilly.  After the tour, we decided to brave the cold and walk around some of the historic neighborhood where all the houses, even if not designed by Wright,are huge and gorgeous.

Although this is a Thursday Doors post, I couldn’t share just the doors.  The houses themselves are worth a look even if, in this case, FLW didn’t design them .  In this first shot, you get both a gate and a door at no extra charge.  This might be my favorite house.  It’s certainly my favorite front walkway.
