Vintage Builders

Took this shot on Seminary St in the residential area of downtown. I did not think this house was that special, but it does have a sweet front porch. And what you cannot see is the window on the left side of the house is a large stained glass window that looks like it was once in a church. The 1st couple of times I saw houses being moved in downtown I was amazed, but it is not that unusual here. Many of the old historic houses were at some point moved to where they now sit. And some are moved away from the Napa River which floods every few years.
For some fantastic photos of our most recent flood of January 06 click here. You will have to put your mouse above the word small at the bottom left, then click the right arrow.
