    1820 Maine farm house
    San Francisco, CA

    This is my old high school. Dr. Seuss and Timothy Leary also graduated from Classical. At the time I was there (1970’s) it was like going to school in Hogwarts.

    There’s not much known about the early history of the bracketed Chalet Style house in Richfield Springs, known as Hillcrest. It’s thought to have been built in the 1870’s, when the town was becoming popular as a resort for folks to “take the waters”. Some of the large cottages from the early days survive, though Clayton Lodge, designed in 1882 by McKim, Mead & White for industrialist Cyrus McCormick, was demolished in the 1950’s.

    The house has an excellent large site and some nice outbuildings. The interior has been renovated a few times and has lost most of its original fabric. A talented designer-craftsman could do wonders with it!

    that is unbelievable! when it was built, my Grandma was attending a one-room frame school house in SW Michigan.

    Note how the front door of the Penobscot Maine house does not face the road.
    Such houses were generally built before the road, and faced in the direction that people approached the house.
    In Maine that was generally the local watercourse, since water substituted for the nonexistent roads.

      Thanks for explanation. I was puzzled as to where the front door was and how to get to it. I assume the mowed area approaching the front door is the driveway.

    Love the kitchen, especially the stove in the Maine house
