The Emerson Hadley House

Post by mjt »

Hi all,

I've recently discovered this site and I'm impressed with what everyone is doing to their homes.

A few years ago we bought an historic home and have been slowly renovating it - we're on a 20-year plan it seems...

The Emerson Hadley House was built in 1895. It is a Georgian Colonial Revival designed by Cass Gilbert. Shortly after it was built, the house was featured in a publication from the American Institute of Architects. This picture is from 1897:

Another from 1973:

And finally, one from about a year after we bought it (soffit & fascia restoration almost complete and new lawn *trying* to come in...):

Only 20 years?

Ok, that'd work since it's brick built :lol:

Cool house - do you have any interior pictures? Please, pretty please.

I want a house with a name!

Such a gorgeous house, too. I love big square brick houses. They make me want to found a new country on the principles of freedom of expression and self-determination. :wink:

Lots of interior photos on the blog and here's a few select ones...

The Library/Study (refinished floor and freshly painted walls/ceiling; we didn't do anything to the millwork):

And one of the door from the Study to the adjacent bathroom (note old wall color in the study):

Welcome, welcome, welcome! Bless you for taking on the stewardship of an old house. It warms our hearts to see it.
