There are a number of very handsome Federal Period houses and churches, pure white as befits their heritage from (what people thought were*) pure white Greek temples. And there are the riotously colorful Victorians, polychrome painted as they should be and beautifully maintained.
There's also a Chevrolet Museum of all things west of town, and a couple of first class antique barns--one on five levels that takes a good hour and a half to go through. I'm headed there next on the lookout for some sort of outdoor table for the new little deck I wrote about. I'm totally open to any style or material, just so it somehow relates to the house and is totally suitable for outdoor use.
From now on, it's ALL opera, All the time!
*In point of fact Greek temples and other buildings were painted even more brightly and with just as much ornamentation as the Victorian houses.
However I know from visiting the Hall of Fame that they have a huge blow-up version of one of Jim's underwear ads. He looks GOOD!
