Window Views and doors too

John Adams birthplace, Quincy, Mass.

Door details:
pilasters (columns on either side of the door)
architrave (horizontal band of trim)
pediment (triangular piece on the top)
dentil molding (called dentil because it looks like teeth)

Mary, how cool! I love that you've got the architectural elements there as well. I'm trying to learn more about them, too.

an unadorned beauty.
I imagine it was painted at some point, but I rather like this rustic look.

For a rather plain house, they put a lot of work into the entrance. Great post!

Such a cool looking house. I love the ruggedness of it and the pattern of the wood.
