Monday Doorways & Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors

Many communities in the San Francisco Bay Area
work very hard to preserve what little is left of their pioneer past.
The city of Dublin was able to recreate a little piece of life
from its early Irish settlers.
Here's the old Kolb Family Ranch home
which was moved from its former location a few miles away
to the city's new Heritage Park and Museum on Donlon Way.
The craftsman style house has been carefully restored
and now houses a museum and archives.
What you're seeing in this shot is the side entrance
with its classic yet simply-styled windows and doorway...

Wow, that is lovely! It does indeed look far more ranch-like than anything I've seen in the Bay Area :)
I'm glad they successfully restored and preserved it! Great find!

This is great - an Irish cottage infused with a California bungalow style. That covered porch is great when it is hot, the windows a great period style. To relax outside in the shade under cover would be a real treat!

What a great stoop on this house.

Great shot of this lovely old house. We have similar such homes in Australia and they are called "Californian bungalows".

The craftsman style house always looks so sturdy and down to earth.

Ah, Dublin--just up the road from Livermore where I once lived.

What a great house--almost craftsman style but not quite, almost ranch style but not that either. Love those diamond windows.
