365-72 A visit to Roberts House

Aaaargh, I don’t know why I keep losing ALL of my text after I publish a post. It’s getting aggravating.

Okay, back to my story. I discovered this old house in a neighboring town that was constructed, I believe, in the late 18th/early 19th century. It’s called Roberts House. I don’t know what the historical significance of it is except that it is really old. It recently has been taken over by a historical society but it doesn’t look like they had a chance to do anything with it yet. Someone had lived in it until fairly recent so there are some modern touches but very few, it appears. I took some detail shots around the house but I liked the lines and texture in my 365 photo of the rear door, taken with my Super-Takumar 50mm. All shots with Pentax K20D and various lenses.
