Well, here is Salt Lake it is estimated to hit 90 tomorrow (only 88 today) and I am really missing fall weather as we approach October in just 2 days. It is not only that wonderfully crisp air, but the fall foliage and weekends in New England that I miss...the historic homes, the stone walls and the overall ooze of charm. Yes, I miss the east coast. Sure, there are leaves and crisper temperatures up in Park City, but its just not the same.
Here are a few charmers that are still around courtesy of Historic New England that I would love to visit:
The Sarah Orne Jewett House in Maine, 1774:
The Spencer-Pierce-Little Farm in Newbury Mass, 1690:
And a few great properties I have had the pleasure to visit already:
The Otis House in Boston, 1796:
Lyndhurst in the Hudson Valley, 1838:
And a historic site I visited often in my teens and absolutely embodies the New England autumn- Weir Farm in Wilton, CT (photos from the Weir Farm website):
