I have walked past this house dozens of times. Somehow I never noticed the Historical Society sign. It's a charming little home.

IMG_3186 as Smart Object-1The Craftsman home was an architectural style that began around the end of the 19th century. The style was a single-story home with sloping roofs, deep front porch with rectangular pillars. Typically the living room is open and large with exposed beams.

It was part of the Arts and Crafts movement that emphasized handiwork over mass production. The movement continued into the 1930s. Interestingly, the bungalow style originated from India.
