The Left Side of the Street

North Harris Street, Sandersville, Georgia is one of those beautiful sleepy Southern streets.

General Sherman slept on this street, at the Brown House, during the Civil War.  He did not burn down the city.

That was mighty generous of him. I will show this house on another post.

These photos are from houses on the left side of the street driving north on state Highway 15.

It was extremely hot so I never made it to the right side of the street. Yes, I am a wimp.

This house looks like a pink wedding cake!north harris st. s.ville june 2010 023

This house has no paint, just like our old house. They are  made from fat lighter and will not rot but will catch fire easily. It has the best door with lovely details.north harris st. s.ville june 2010 026

This house is my favorite. I think. It is hard to decide. Those columns…gracious!north harris st. s.ville june 2010 031

Look at those porches. Can you see yourself  in a rocking chair reading the paper?

Afternoon tea anyone?north harris st. s.ville june 2010 032

Thanks bunches for joining me on the left side of the street. When I visit the right side of the street you will see the garden at the Brown House.
