My town is a strange mix of pre-1886 and post. A major flood wiped out much of the town in the late 1800s, leaving a smattering of old, stone buildings downtown and some beautiful Victorian homes at the top of the hill. There is a predominance of beautiful fieldstone, if you can find it among the industrial brick and boarded up buildings that came about when the town started to decline after the steel and coal industries went kerphlooey.
I only had half an hour to race downtown for a few quick pictures. I hope you enjoy them!
The first are a few photos of a church built in 1844. It's a very neat building--all curves. I wish I could have found a place to show you the whole thing, but you get the idea.
Across from it is a hotel. Much newer. I'm not sure what's with the grecian columns. I have nothing AGAINST grecian columns as a rule, but they look really, really out of place on top of this particular building. But what do I know?
Next to this, yet another church:
I couldn't not show you what made this town what it is today. It's not pretty, but I it just wouldn't be honest not to include it here. Not sure if it counts as architecture, though!
