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!
This classic 1850s Greek Revival style village home has an attached carriage house in the Italianate style, suggesting it was built a decade or more later than the house. The connected house, ell, shed, and carriage house was a common form in New England villages from the early 19th century into the early 20th. The form changed when automobiles appeared on the scene. They were considered a potential fire hazard at first, so garages tended not to be connected to houses until after World War II. The house is located in Kennebunk, Maine.
