Whimsical Windows / Delirious Doors returns again courtesy of Toby. We look for architectural gems in portals and other places.
Today, the subject is our church, the First Congregational Church in Derby Connecticut. This structure was built in the 1820s. The pillars are a Greco-Roman style, the windows have the period twelve- over-twelve pane look, the clock sits on the steeple with a weathervane on top and the color is white.
seems constant is that this structure is not all that unique in New England -
on every town green, the church/meetinghouse was and is still
prevalent in all six states.
Naturally,there have been updates from those tymes: Central heating instead of a stove,modern double-paned insulated windows and central air-conditioning are all installed. There is interesting architecture nearby to all our domiciles. We merely have to capture it!
