Stanley-Whitman House

The Stanley-Whitman House is a house museum in Farmington village.  It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960.

The house is a classic New England saltbox form, and it has a classic stone wall along the street.  This would have been the good life in the beginning of the eighteenth century.

I love a nice stone wall, whether it's in front of a house or a pasture.

I always enjoy visiting these period homes; gives me some idea of a bygone era.

I think I could have survived here.

It's beautiful...and as Farmchick said, it wouldn't be a bad life now (esp. if it had indoor plumbing!)...

Re your "incendiary" comment on Ocala DP: You like "faded" colors? I don't think so. I think you're kidding me! Maybe you should move to Boca Raton? Put a little fire in your life! :-)

I can tell from the chimney that there is a grand fireplace inside.

I love these old homes. I also like this shot. You framed it all very well. I'm getting the picture that Farmington is a very nice place.

It has an interesting shape with that overhang to the first floor. I wonder why they did that?
