In the Fair City of Winchester

Little Things Thursday and Fences.
The Hexagon House was completed in 1873. It is owned by the nearby Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.

Winchester features a walking mall which is popular for public gatherings. It has a number of restaurants and shops.

The stone steps and little building attracted me. I believe this is privately owned.

The final image is near Shenandoah University. I was running some errands in Winchester one afternoon and saw that the sunset was going to be pretty. Where to get a good view? Oh, a friend had recently taken a picture of the duck pond at dusk, so that seemed like a good place to try. Yep!

I'll take my bow and sign off now.


  1. ...I've seen several hexagon house. but none like this one.

  2. the hexagon house is fantastic.The archtecture is completely diffferent from Europe

  3. The hexagon house looks so interesting. Have you taken more photos of it before? I'd love to see more of it.

    1. No, but a friend says she has been inside on a special tour. I hope they'll open it again, or perhaps I can get permission to enter the property and get pictures from a different angle.

  4. A ultima fotografia está espectacular, aproveito para desejar um bom fim-de-semana.

  5. Hello, sunset at the duck pond is beautiful. I like the stone steps and the cute hexagon house. Enjoy your day, have a great weekend ahead!

  6. I like the two different buildings...hexagon house is certainly worth saving...but the little building, private, is also intriguing. Thanks for being our eyes on this beauty.

  7. no snow there, lots here and more coming

  8. That is one exceptional house.

  9. The sunset is just beautiful, great shot.

    All the best Jan

  10. Although I enjoy historic houses, that sunset photo is so beautiful that it's the one I focused on. Our local community college demolished a historic building called the Alms House a couple or three years back - people fought for years to save it but their efforts were eventually unsuccessful.
