The house at 12th and Grand

Italianate Victorian House in Astoria, Oregon Maybe it's no surprise that this harmonious and balanced house on the corner with its unusual, but very pleasing colors is one of my favorite buildings in all of Astoria.

Funny how we think that 100+ year old houses must be white because that is how we see them in old photographs. Most older houses being restored and remodeled have to follow the orginal colors. We have many pink with dark trim and light green houses here. I like this house. MB

That would be one of my favorite houses, too. A grand old lady with great dignity and charm. I do like the colors. And I saw some stained glass windows, also, on the second floor!

Nice photos!

I remember that earlier post very well. I've said before, older homes have so much more character than the newer "boxes". What fun it would be to walk through this house with a camera.

Now THIS is the RIGHT green. ;-)

Hi Sheryl...just got your funny. I'd be excited, too. And I do things like you did even when I'm not excited!

Hope you have a wonderful trip! See "Hi" to Lee.

I love the stained glass. I would sure hate to have to paint it.

An uncommon color for an unusual and lovely house.
