About two weeks ago I featured The Green Cottage and said I would be showing more of my favorite landmarks. This is the Icicle Cottage to everyone in my family. It is one of the best preserved and charming Victorian cottages anywhere. Built by John Eli Brattain around 1883 notice the “gingerbread” trim on this home. My family always called this trim “icicles”. Mr Brattain was a woodworker by trade and the trim was cut by hand, so no two pieces of Icicle trim is the same.
I also love the HUGE tree in the front garden and the yellow climber that has overtaken the tree on its way to the top! This tree is a show stopper in the Spring!
I hope you have enjoyed our stroll around the village today! Get out and enjoy your spot and take a Photo with your phone (or Photos, I can’t help myself) for The IPhriday Photo Challenge!
