    Jim, I also love those old homes, especially the brick or masonry ones.
    I wish I was wealthy enough to own one, and pay someone else to maintain it.
    The Lafayette homes look familiar, probably around 9th Street historic district I’d guess.

      The Perrin district. Is that near 9th St?

        Yes, it’s a few blocks East of 9th Street. Here is the Cyrus Ball house on 9th Street.

    I love old houses….we are selling our large city home to buy a much smaller cottage in the countryside, also built around 1915. Modern homes just don’t interest me. The cottage will be a lot easier to maintain than our current home, which is a bonus! Love the variety of cameras used in this post Jim!

      Here in the US, early-mid 1900s homes are a good way to own an old house. They are generally built using more modern technique than houses from the 1800s and have some advantages in maintenance.

      The house I’m in now was built in 2006, and while it’s as inspiring as a gray stone, it requires next to no maintenance. I have to give it that.

    My favourite photo is the one that includes your bicycle. My favourite house is the first one. It looks cosy and maintainable.

      That’s the McKinley House. It’s on the National Road, of which I’ve written a ton on this site. Here’s a little bit more about this house:

    I never realized how many 19th century homes had arched or rounded windows. Some of those pictured have rectangular window frames inside arched brick openings. Perhaps they are later replacements.

    A wonderful collection of pictures. I love the old brick houses of Ohio, Indiana, and the southernmost counties of Michigan. They are certainly part of a bygone era.

      I’m always a little saddened when I find rectangular windows in an arched frame. But I get it, those windows would have to be custom made.
