Salem Architecture

More Salem pictures! Emily found this great walking map of the historic buildings in Salem, it talked about the architecture and history of the period and we got to see some amazing New England homes. 
So many brick facades and gorgeous fences.
Then in the middle of the downtown is the super modern Peabody Essex Museum, so cool. The facade above makes me think of the big heads on Easter Island.
This is the First Unitarian Church, it was started in 1629! I just love the reflection in the neighboring pond.
These home are just so amazing. Now many are private homes that are marked as historical sites. I just love that one is numbered as 1 1/2!
Every house we came to I exclaimed that I wanted to live in it. I think if I want to afford this neighborhood I need to start playing the lottery...But it is fun to look at, that is for certain! 
We had such a lovely day! I for sure want to head back there again and explore even more!

I love this series...made even more enticing by the fact that we are building up to the American Revolution in Aidan's studies. Would love to do that within your context. Have briefly touched on Salem witch trials.

These old buildings are so special and your got some fantastic shots (as always). We just don't have old buildings like that in the west and they are so fun to see.
