Circa. 1860 quarter plate tintype of this beautiful home. Whoever owned the home, they were obviously doing quite well for themselves. The home has been built on the side of a small hill which has allowed for a full basement at the lowest level with windows and outside entrance. A rarity for the time period. With the basement and uppermost floor, the home incorporated 4 floors total. Dual chimney’s flank either side of a large glass cupola in the center of the roof while a front porch runs the length of the home with a flight of stairs at either end. There are at least a dozen individuals standing about the front porch and seated in the two carriages which are parked in front of the home. I can only imagine how hot those upper floors would have been in the peak of summertime! Unfortunately I have no idea where this was taken. Housed in a full leatherette case but the spine is separated.
