A Historic Old House

This house probably dates back to the late 18th or early 19th century. It looks like three buildings stuck together. I wonder if the small section on the right is some type of root cellar.

  2. What a terrific capture, James! I do love those old houses. I wouldn't be surprised if the very small one was indeed a root cellar! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Very nice. Hmmm root cellar? Does one of those have windows? But who am I do know. I would think it would be below the ground. Maybe it's the servants quarters. Anyway, great photo :) Have a great weekend :)

  5. black and white sure takes it back to an earlier time. I love the clean lines of it. Your header is a walk back through time as well.

  6. Perhaps in Luxembourg someone would say that's a brand new one! :)
    God bless you!

  10. How perfect with that curved road leading the eye from the right foreground back into the background all balanced by the dark tree on the left.

    Maybe it was a rood cellar but it would make a great photography/art studio! I'm glad these old houses are kept up. It would be such a shame to let developers get hold of them and the land.

  11. Simply beautiful James, especially in black and white like that. Pennsylvania is just chock full of beautiful old places, and unbelievably scenic landscapes... Can attest to that after spending the last week out exploring back roads... all sorts of treasures to be discovered out there !
