Thursday Doors from PA

Steff at 18-200mm suggested we check out New Oxford while visiting Gettysburg, and we did just that.

We parked in the square to look at the shops and talk to an apple vendor.

While looking around, we saw this beautiful Church door. The vine growing on the fence? Hyacinth Bean Vine which was only appropriate since mine originally came from PA. 🙂

As we were heading back to Gettysburg, we passed this beautiful home. We backtracked so I could get some photos. But, it was worth it.

This beautiful home was built in 1888, 25 years after the Battle of Gettysburg. If interested, it has 7 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths and is on the market for a mere $569,900.

Happy Thursday from New England by way of these beautiful Pennsylvania doors. 🙂

    Love the curved top of the first one, and that Himes house would make a great B & B wouldn’t it? I’ll just need to figure out where I left that spare half-mill laying around to buy it 😉

    I find the northeastern USA has such appealing architecture. The arch and porch on the church set off its doors beautifully.

    Great little collection Judy. I love the craftsmanship evident in the arched doors with the curved panels. That is one impressive entrance. Thanks for making the extra trip for us.

    You always find the most interesting doors, Judy! I love the church door and entryway, with its Hyacinth Bean vines climbing the fence. 🙂 Such a beautiful, old home! Wouldn’t it be fun to walk through it? Wishing you lovely Autumn days, Judy! ♡

  13. Sounds like a bargain at the price. I hope it comes with a nice piece of land, too 🙂


  14. So were there reenactors (it says ‘Welcome Reenactors” on the church buttetin)? When I retire I want to be a Civil War reenactor. Of course I won’t look convincing as a young soldier so I’ll just have to be a general.

    Love your choice in doors but I want you to go back and go inside that house for all of us — OK for me! I bet it is just beautiful inside.


  17. I’m thinking the same as the last comment, it would be so nice to see inside! Lovely post Judy 🙂
