So, while there are many buildings to love in the downtown area of Greeneville, TN - like the Capitol Theatre ...
... there are also some amazing, inspiring churches. I mean, wow, look at this!
The sign on this church says it was built in 1780.
And then there are the houses. This one was my first favorite. I love how the shutters are not exactly straight.
But then I saw this one and it was my favorite. I love all the different textures.
And then I saw this one and I just got confused. They're all my favorites!
There is always charm in the disarray of an old Southern home.
And if you believe that too, you'd be particularly charmed by my house - but that's another story.
Anyway. This house got me - the lace curtains, the gingerbread details. I could care less about the gutter. Seriously. If I lived in this house, I would serve tea every afternoon.
Do you think the people who live here can hang out on their roof? I've always wondered that. From down below, it looks like you could have a party up there.
I believe that window above the door is called a fanlight. So cool.
Even the not-quite-so-ornate homes have gorgeous details.
I turned down one or two of the side streets and was floored by the number of beautiful old homes. I didn't even see half of what's there before it was time to go home.
Can't wait to go back.
I have 31 photos in my Greeneville set on flickr, if you care to see them all, and I will probably add some more to them in a few days. And I have 90 photos in my black and whites set. Not all of them have made it onto the blog, so check them out if you're interested. I kinda like seeing them all together like that.
Are you loving the b&ws as much as I am? Then head over to Alex's for wacky hair day, to Shelli's for blocks, to Gayle's to wait for the school bus, to Jean's to see a few old barn silos, to Toni's to see liddle lamzy divey, to Jessica's to wish her a happy birthday on Saturday, to ELK's to see her to-do list for the weekend, to Liss' where she's braved a walk on a cantilever (wow!), and to Elizabeth's for a self-portrait.
