We re-homed a fern and and some new starts better known as Bob Marley and The Succulents. They are currently finding shelter in the parlor. Thank you, @tomronworldwide for the succulents, they are so much fun! The fern we found on FB Marketplace and Bob Marley is its given name.

We won't be trick or treating here on Halloween.

October 23, 2018

This Italianate was built about 1880 for the Englander family and has been abandoned for years. There are plans to move the house and redevelop the property.

The Berghoff - one of the first buildings built in the famous Italianate Style after The Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The legacy can be traced back to 1870, when Herman Berghoff immigrated from Germany to America. After stints working on cotton and sugar cane plantations—and even time spent performing at Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show—Herman opened his own brewery in Indiana.

When the World’s Fair came to Chicago in 1893, Herman Berghoff set up a stand in the Midway Plaisance and sold his beers to people entering and exiting the fair. His success at the fair prompted him to consider a more permanent place to sell his beer in Chicago. Thus, The Berghoff opened doors in 1898. Beers were sold for a nickel and they came with a side sandwich, free!
When Prohibition hit, Herman’s entrepreneurial mind saw it as an opportunity to expand his business as opposed to shutting down. He began brewing “near beer” and Berghoff soda pops while also expanding the food service.
 When Prohibition was lifted, Herman was able to procure Chicago’s first ever liquor license, opening up The Berghoff Bar. The bar, when opened, served men only. It wasn’t until Gloria Steinem and several other members of the National Organization for Women demanded to be served in 1969 that the segregation ended.

The Ace of Clubs House
(Draughon–Moore House) 
420 Pine St., Texarkana, TX. (Constructed 1883-1884) 
According to local lore, it was shaped in plan as a club because its builder and original owner, Confederate veteran, lumberman, and early Texarkana mayor James H. Draughon, built it with $10,000 that he won in a game of poker with an ace of clubs.
The house has 3 groups of octagonal rooms (leaves of a club) opening on a rotunda backed by long rectangular rooms (the Club's stem). Rotunda has a marble mantel, French mirrors and spiral stairway and is topped with 20-foot tower.
Three families have lived in the house. In 1887, William Lowndes Whitaker, Sr., acquired the building. Whitaker lived in it until 1894, when he sold it to an attorney named Henry Moore
In 1985, the house was deeded to the Texarkana Museum System by the Moore family. The house was refurbished in 1987, and it began operating as a museum in 1988. Each room was restored to represent a different time period in the history of the house, spanning from 1880 to 1940.

Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1964

Nestled in the heart of historic downtown Charleston's Harleston Village, you will find one of the finest grand scale Italianate row houses in the country. 105-A Bull is truly a rarity, so be sure to take a look soon. Listed by @jtproperties

This lovely (if somewhat obscured) wooden Federal style house with Italianate features was built in 1853 for Charles S. Nichols of the Mutual Fire Insurance Company (as plainly stated in the plaque in picture 2). I dont have a lot of information about this one. Coupling that with the tree and car in front of the facade I almost didn't post this one but I just...really love it. I'm especially enamoured of the doorway and windows above. It is a private residence.

Cornerways, The Park, Cheltenham is an Italianate style villa dating circa 1839-50, by architect S.W. Daukes. The Park was laid out by 1833 by its owner Thomas Billings as a pear shaped, tree lined drive with a central park, which during the mid-19th century became a zoological garden. Cornerways is believed to have been designed as the zookeeper's house and as a striking feature for the zoological garden.

Waiting for the cable company to come and fix our stuff. Box was ripped right off of the house Saturday night while I was away. No internet is a problem when you work from home! They told us they may not be able to make it here until close to 5:00 🙄 We are on the cancellation list. Although, judging by the storm damage here, I doubt anyone will be cancelling.

A beautiful Italianate store-house on N. Rampart St. built by well known architect G. A. D'Hemecourt in 1879, as a residence for Dr. A. Dupaquier. Rampart St. is named for the ramparts which connected Forts Burgundy, St. Ferdinand, and St. John at the back-of-town border of the French Quarter (then effectively all of New Orleans). Today it is the dividing line between the French Quarter and Tremé. In the 20th century, this building housed a series of restaurants and night clubs. In the 1930s and 40s it was the Vienna Garden restaurant. Most famously, in the 1970s, it was the site of Lu & Charlie's, a focal point for modern jazz in New Orleans. Lu & Charlie's, owned by married couple Lula Lewis and Charlie Bering, hosted such musicians as Ellis Marsalis (and his son Wynton, who played there while still in his teens), James Booker, Alvin Baptiste, and Lady B.J. Today it houses The New Orleans Courtyard Hotel. (Sources: medianola.org, nutrias.org, Trudeau's 1798 plan of NOLA, and historic plaque on site.) #neworleans #architecture #frenchquarter

Originally built in 1858 in the #italianate #architecturestyle and designed by local Columbus Architect E.D. Baldwin the George Griswold House in Columbus, #wisconsin was built local store owner George Griswold who moved to Columbus from New York City. The house was designed similar to one he grew up in as a child. A possible reason for this is that he had degenerative eye site. Today the building is used as a funeral home. The building was added to the #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces in 2009.

It's nearly Halloween! 😱🏚️👻 Over the next ten days we are going to feature some of our favorite spooky sites of New York City. First up this 10-bedroom mansion which is sometimes called the "Grey Gardens" of #StatenIsland for its dilapidated state and eccentric former residents. (photo via @nypl)⠀
.⠀
Constructed between 1855 and 1856, the Italianate mansion at 2475 Richmond Road is a nearly singular survivor of this type on home on Staten Island. The 7,700-square-foot home was built by an unknown architect. It was designed in accordance with the "picturesque movement" popular at the time, which adhered to the spirit of the built house in concert with it surrounding landscape and situated in such a way to provide the loveliest vistas.⠀
.⠀
The house was owned by a long series of men in the mid to late 19th century. In the 1890s Gustav Mayer, a German confectioner, moved his family and then his business into the home. He sold his products to many high-end restaurants, groceries, and confectioneries in the city. He is known as the creator of the original Nabisco wafer. Mayer died in 1918, but his two daughters, Paula and Emilie, lived in the house into the 1980s. By then advanced in age, they confined themselves to two rooms on the second floor, despite the house having more than 20 rooms on four floors. The home sold in 1990 and while the new owners lived in a few rooms, they also rented out the space for photo shoots and filming. The massive, landmarked, and almost purposefully run-down house came on the market in 2014 with a $2.3 million price tag and sold sometime in 2016 for a more reasonable (?) $1.74 million.⠀

Very verdant in the jungle room

Happy Sunday old house lovers!! Sorry for the lack of posts this weekend - let’s get back on track with this doozy! 😲😲Thanks to @cincinnati_revealed for tagging! ・・・
A rural variant of Italianate built at the conclusion of the Civil War in Greendale, Indiana. The design is defined by its cupola, but also features arched windows and a bracketed cornice. The elliptical fanlight that adorns the front door reflects an appreciation for earlier Federal architecture.

We may be biased, but we think Montfort was definitely the perfect backdrop for this shoot. Our friends @holderhome styled, shot, and modeled these captivating photos for @jpetermanco.
⋒
We have received a lot of inquiries from photographers asking to shoot in Montfort in its current, raw condition. We are humbled! We love that others see the current and future potential of the space. Due to our schedule at this time, we are putting a pause on professional photography pre-restoration, but will certainly share if anything changes. The best way to stay in the know is through our mailing list. Sign up via our website linked in our bio. Xoxo.

 #fallforcostume Day 20 Small
Yesterday I posted the about my trip to the Met for Big but today I visited the Frick Collection. An amazing, small museum that is loaded with some of the finest art ever. Fragonard, Boucher, Tuner, ElGreco, Rembrandt, Goya, Hoppner and more not to mention every room was designed to fit a different genre. But no pictures inside! 😂

One of the most significant rescues made by Clough Williams Ellis was the 17th century plaster ceiling at Emral Hall, one of the great houses of Wales. Clough bought the huge barrel vaulted ceiling for £13 and also the panelling and fireplace from the room where the plasterwork was installed.. The ceiling depicts the Labours of Hercules. A somewhat cumbrous purchase. Undeterred, he had the ceiling sawn up into 100 pieces and had it installed in thr "Town Hall" at Portmerion. On the day of my visit the manager was scraping the old polish off the floor by hand..it is a big room!
There's dedication for you!

17-19 York was built in #1901 so isn’t exactly modern — yet it just barely counts as a #20thCentury building. Its neighbour 11 York – at the entrance to the #JeanneDArcCourtyard – was almost destroyed by fire in 1976. Both were grocers a century ago.
🏛
“Located in a fashionable retail area of the market area in downtown Ottawa, the Office Building, located at 17-19 York Street, is a large stone and brick building. The influence of the #Italianate style is evidenced in the handsome principal façade. The main features of the five-bay building include a ground floor of rusticated stone, arched openings at each storey, and a heavy and elaborate cornice at roof level. …
[…]
“The #OfficeBuilding is a very good example of a building associated with the commercial development of Ottawa in the late 19th and early 20th century, and also illustrates the stable and healthy Canadian economy of the period. The owner, Joseph Grant, was a wholesale grocer with a flourishing business at the turn of the century. Grant’s large and attractive building reflected his prosperity and also demonstrated the development of consumer demand in Canada. The building now serves as office space while the ground floor is used for fashion retail stores.

“… Good functional design is evidenced in the structure’s adaptive reuse from its initial warehouse role through to its current combination of office and retail space. Very good craftsmanship is evidenced in the #stonework of the ground floor exterior and in the brickwork.”

“The 3-storey fieldstone building at 11 York Street, gutted by fire 10 years ago [ #1976], is finally in use again. After standing empty for a decade, with only the facade and partial walls remaining, the building was rebuilt over the summer and is now home to American designer Ralph Lauren's first Ottawa boutique… .”
