Beautiful woodwork

Filed under: Homes — lessie @ 4:10 pm

A little tease of one of my favorite houses in Anderson. It’s found on River Street. I finally stopped to photograph it a couple of months ago. For years I drove by it to go to the DMV, and each time I would think — cool house, must take a picture. Makes me wonder what neat houses are out there that I don’t drive by and therefore may never know.



  1. LOL, Lessie – what an existential dillema 😉 I thought you were not supposed to miss what you don’t know!

    Lovely house detail!

  2. Lovely detail on that house. Do they call it “gingerbread carving”?

  6. Jana — I do too!

    Vickie — the photo didn’t come out, but here is a URL link to the ad for the house. It’s amazing. Makes me think about moving! 🙂

  8. Anderson has a large number of old historic houses – unfortunately, it seems like hardly anybody has the resources to fix them up…one would think that the city/government/historic society/or whoever, would put more money into keeping them up to preserve them for history’s sake. Those houses are actually the biggest part of Anderson’s charm …too bad they are getting rarer…
