The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
The Italianate style C. Sydney and Emily Smith House in Thomaston, Maine was built in 1877. The style arrived in the U.S. before the Civil War and took off after the war, with examples of the style appearing in all parts of the United States. Queen Victoria’s use of the style for her country villa, Osborne House, on the Isle of Wight popularized the style in the U.K and U.S.
The Smith House is one of the 13 Featured Houses photographed by noted architectural photographer David Clough and presented between the how-to chapters of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
