An Autumn Walk Through History

I don’t know about you, but I find Autumn to be one of the prettiest times of year to get out and enjoy the out of doors. The leaves are turning vibrant and fiery colors, our mornings are hidden away inside a cloud of chilly fog and everything is covered in moss… at least if you’re in Western Washington! Yesterday, on just such a morning as that, my brother and I took an architectural history tour around a gorgeous and very historical neighborhood of Seattle; Queen Anne. I’d like to give you a taste not only of some of the houses I fell deeply in love with yesterday (and how much I adore brick), but also how very perfect Fall is in the Pacific Northwest.

Of course, to see and learn about everything on the tour, you’ll have to take it yourself. So if you live near Seattle (or are going to be visiting Seattle) and would like to see all of the fantastic, historical architecture that we saw, click here to find out more about the tour Queen Anne: The Evolution of an Urban Neighborhood.
