Blandwood Lines and Shadows

As I continue my stroll around a local historical mansion…

Factoids: Up to 1800, Blandwood Mansion was surrounded by 100 acres of farmland; now it reigns over one downtown block.  It is the oldest building on its original foundation in the city of Greensboro (1795), and was named a National Historic Landmark in 1988.

Feast your brain on the building’s architectural history as well – learn about ties to Italy/Tuscany and tripartite design themes…

Back corner garden entrance to Blandwood Mansion. Behind the lattice? Gardening junk!

Lucked out with time of day; caught the chimney shadow over this door.

Woodwork, paints of white, pale blue and yellow, wooden blinds, lines in general…
