Hartford Children's Theatre

The headquarters of the Hartford Children's Theatre is on Farmington Avenue in Hartford.  I think the roofline is the most interesting part of the building.

It has wonderful old architectural design. They don't build anything like this anymore.

Beautiful house. It makes me think of the book "House of Seven Gables".

What a lovely house! Looks a little bit like a gingerbread house:)

I love the architectural detail on that roofline too. The chimneys are more intricate than most which adds to the beauty of it. Same for the framing around the windows. This is an architectural gem, Jack. It's great when buildings like this find another use.

A fine old building! Glad that has been re-purposed.

Oh how strange. From the first photo I wouldn't necessarily have placed this beauty in the USA but it became obvious in the second shot!

I love this picture, looks like a doll house.

Farmchick said...

Such character and unique details in this structure. I wish homes were still built like this.

Randy said...

Excellent! I think it would be better as a house.

Love the house, roof and the sculpture at the front, including the very small rock in front of sculpture. Almost looks like a penquin but think it might be some form of art representing theatrical something or other.

Jack, you take the coolest pictures, I sincerely enjoy looking at what you come up with. I like buildings like that-ones with personality.

What productions do they put on?

Gabled roof lines intrigue me no end.

VP said...

A lovely building for a very intersting purpose...

A gabled treasure. But the rest of the building ain't bad, either. I like the porch.

Hope you don't get hit with another big snowstorm this weekend. It's raining the proverbial cats 'n dogs here ... very strange and unusual.
