Step into the past…

I thought this Saturday might be a good time for a change of pace and a step back in time.  I came across this house the other day while visiting Easton, Maryland for the first time.  Located in the East Shore of Maryland, Easton is a wonderful place to see, and certainly one of its most attractive homes is the Bullitt House on E. Dover Street.  It was built in 1801 by Mr. Thomas Bullitt, a local lawyer, to accommodate his growing family, and has witnessed a fair amount of history in the years that followed.

Not only is the house one of simple elegance, it has an enchanting garden to the side.

Additions to the rear of the home have an old world charm that seems out-of-place today.  Out of place in a way that makes you want to go back to when things were somehow quieter and simpler…

Yes, this is simple charm, something that we seem to have lost.  Maybe that is why the few examples of this charm that remain for us to view often find their way into drawings, paintings and calendars!

Today the house is owned by the Mid-Shore Community Foundation.

I hope that these photos have given you a little sense of beauty and serenity for your Saturday, and that you all have a blessed weekend!
