The Chittenden House





The Chittenden House is was built between 1837 and 1839 and is another beautifully restored building located in the Park Avenue Historic District near downtown. The most recent restoration was in 2015 when it was reopened as The Park Avenue Inn. You can read about the fascinating history of the Chittenden House and see a few pictures of its interior here. It was a little challenging to get good photos of this house because it is located so close to the street and also because of all the beautiful landscaping. I took the third picture from the park across the street. I'm not sure what kind of plant that is in the last picture, but I'm sure one of my readers can identify it for me. It was growing in one of the planters near the front steps.

All I can say is "Wow!" We lived in a similar-looking house when I was young and I loved them and still do. This is so beautiful!

I like to look at these old houses and picture in my mind the people coming and going on that porch and what they would be wearing or doing. I really like the windows surrounding the door.. beautiful lady

The leaves of the plant look like those of citrus. I imagine it may be a mini orange tree.

Sure is a lovely old home! The leaves on the plant look miniature orange-y maybe or baby lemons?
