For those of you who do not know it, the picture at the top of the blog is a picture of The Main Street House. I don't know who the man is standing in front of The House but The Husband thinks he is pretty cool. Since then a porch has been added onto the side of the house but, other than that, I think it looks pretty much the same.
Also, I know I have written about this before but our house has an official name. Because we live in the historic district, it is part of a self-guided walking tours where our house is referred to as The Jonathan Stanton House, or The Stanton House for short.
Although it doesn't appear that anything exciting happened in our house it is a suspected (but not confirmed) stop on the Underground Railroad. What we do know about The House goes something like this:
Joseph Stanton House - circa 1831
Jonathan Stanton and his brother Joseph arrived from Virginia in 1828. Both brothers were active in the Underground Railroad. The owned the house, but their is no evidence that they ever lived there. The house is noteworthy for its unusual Greek Revival architecture.
Pretty cool huh? Okay, so maybe not really.
