Hill House and details on Summit Ave.

 You can see the Cathedral of Saint Paul to the left.  And here we are at James J. Hill’s house.   You can out-click and read about Mr. Hill.

 We wandered around the grounds, but did not go inside.  Nice house eh?

 I have to say that the Turnblads had the better topper to their porte cochere.  A sunroom beats a patio any day.

 Beautiful wrought iron.

 Having explored the grounds of the Hill House, we took a walk on Summit Ave to see what the neighbors have been up to.

Another good wrought iron detail.

  1. The Hill House sort of looks like an oversized hobbit house. I think it’s the color of the brick that makes me think that. Do those serpents have weird heads or am I looking at it funny?

  2. Sheesh, I’m strong! HA! I like how enjoyable this “walk by” exterior visit was, in spite of not actually touring! Yay!

  3. Good morning, friend! I am swinging by for a few comments before I prep the house for our next round of visitors. A storm is kicking up and it is quite fun to hear the wind begin its raging…
