It’s also partly a neighborhood where people live in privately-owned historic homes. And it also contains an exclusive private school, so students and their visiting families can be seen strolling the campus and streets everywhere. Here’s a view of part of the campus, but I took this shot mostly so you could see the beautiful autumn foliage in the distance.
This time, I opted not to buy a museum ticket and just stick with my original intention of strolling the leaf-strewn streets.
As usual, it was the front doors (so beautifully decorated for autumn) that captured my attention.
This home belonged to an officer who fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill, and there was a touching tribute etched on a mill stone nearby that said “…his descendants cherish his home”.
Such a beautiful, autumn day!
Now I’m thinking that I need to go back when there’s snow on the ground and it’s decorated for Christmas!
