Once again it was a chilly walk at 30 degrees F. I know for many of my readers that’s down right “balmy”. In fact, I grew up in Nebraska so I do know what “cold” can really be. After 50 plus years in Washington I guess my blood has thinned. I was going to show you some the frost around town but found that it is hard to make a good photoblog out of “frost”.
Instead I thought I share some of the late 1800’s Victorian homes around Coupeville. There are actually quite a few and there must have been a real building surge around 1880. Here are a few that I’d like to share. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
Captain Joseph Clapp – 1886
Ernest and Nellie Lovejoy – Watson House – 1886
Jacob Jenne – 1889
Todd Parker – 1886 Now the Lovejoy Bed and Breakfast
John and Jane Kenith – 1887 Now The Blue Goose Inn
Coupe – Gillespie 1881
Will – Jenne – 1890 Now the Compass Rose Bed and Breakfast
Zylstra – 1889
I hope you enjoy the history I share of my little town from time to time.
