    That one bedroom’s window seat is sooo nice! Have never seen one quite like it. And the pale yellow bath – pretty.

    1875 Victorian Farmhouse
    Lancaster, PA,

    Belleview Park, along with Front St. along the Susquehanna River, competed for Harrisburg’s wealthiest residents before WWII. Sadly Front St. is now largely commercial, but Belleview remains a lovely example of Olmstead-style picturesque neighborhood planning.
    From belleviewpark.org: “Located within the city limits of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the residential neighborhood of Bellevue Park reflects the genius of two of America’s pioneering advocates of urban beautification and landscape conservation. J. Horace McFarland, a local Harrisburg businessman and civic leader, partnered with Warren H. Manning of Boston, one of America’s pre-eminent landscape designers of the early twentieth century. The houses in Bellevue Park are a combination of architect, developer and contractor designs. Each design was subject to the review and approval of the Bellevue Park Association prior to its construction. The McFarland – Manning collaboration resulted in central Pennsylvania’s first landscaped suburb, just five minutes from downtown Harrisburg and the Pennsylvania State Capitol complex.”
    McFarland, along with Mira Lloyd Dock, a leading early (female) conservationist, was instrumental in bringing the “City Beautiful” movment of urban improvement and beautification to Pennsylvania’s capitol. Both these individuals are well worth “googling”.
