Taking it back a few weeks to this house which had me doing circles around the neighborhood to get back to it!! I HAD to take a picture otherwise it would haunt me. Do others get that way? I really have a mental list of all the spots I must return to. Anyway, this blue beauty stole my !
With the winter finally here in New England I think back sunny, warm days. I'm sure the family that owns this sweet Victorian cottage has memories galore of summers spent in the Plainville Camp Ground! Founded in 1865, this was a Methodist campground where people would travel quite distance, with their tents, to form outdoor churches. The tabernacle is the center of the community and still remains in the center of this community. In the 1900s these cottages (Carpenter Gothic, Eastlake and Stick style) replaced tents. By 1901, about 3,000 to 5,000 people were gathering here each summer. A largely summer community, there are 5 year round residents here now. In 1957 the Methodist Church sold the property to the Plainville Camp Grounds Association and it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
