    When I was finishing this post up, realized it was next door to a prison. As far as prisons go, it’s not a bad looking one. I also love that pink towered home across the street.

    Wonderful! Just my cup of tea, and in my favorite state.

    1979 That 70's show
    Otis Orchards, WA

    Irregardless of the location, the house has great bones and wonderful details on the exterior. It’s even my wife’s favorite color!

    Regardless or Irrespective of the prison, I find it funnier that they’re calling this 1860s house a “CLASSIC TURN OF THE CENTURY HOME”. Far from it. This is a mid to late 19th century home in my experience. Especially this type of design. 🙂

    That exterior woodwork is beautiful. I’d love to restore the porch railings and base that appear to have been enclosed at some point.

    Interior is really mostly cosmetic changes to me.

    I wonder why there’s a 20″ stove in the kitchen.

    Interesting – Looks like a pretty nice neighborhood regardless of the prison…

    Smalltown, OK

    When I was a kid (60s-70s)my dad worked for the Federal Bureau of Prisons. We often lived on the prison grounds and yes, it’s true, if a prisoner escapes they aren’t going to stick around! In all those years -even with prisoners maintaining the lawns and trash service (trustees)- there was never a single problem.
