I liked the view of the statue coming out of the top of the tree. This is William Seward he is most often remembered for acquiring Seward's Folly also known as Alaska...ut he had a long political career.
This fancy red post was part of the system to notify the fire department of a fire. Some of the boxes were installed in the 1850's. It's not functional but it's still nice to see a bit of history. I wonder who is keeping it shiny red!
It was history time last weekend. This 1700 home was headquarters a few times to George Washington during the Revolutionary War. The brown part is the 2 room house and the white part is the kitchen. The General and his 20 or so aides and executive officers shared the room on the right which had to be a pretty tight fit!
British John Andre was brought to Washington here after he was caught with treasonous papers from Benedict Arnold. Andre was tried and hanged in the little town.
We had our 6th Annual Craft Weekend at our favorite Connecticut bed and breakfast inn. They let us take over. Mostly we are inside crafting but we try to get a photo on the porch each year. I have a better photo of us on the porch but I like this one with more porch in the background.
