Even with signs of ice melt along the sidewalk and salt stains on the surface of this stone paved street it was beginning to appear that Winter is finally drawing to an end here in Annapolis this morning. While the temperature are expected to reach the high 40’s before the day is over, certainly not Sperrys and shorts weather but then again this is Annapolis, for me it just felt like Spring was in the air as I strolled past this group of 19th and 18th century residences.

Yes I know it seems more appropriate to say 18th and 19th century however the reason I chose to reverse the chronological order of things is because the above featured residences are actually set in that order. First of all there are, left to right looking up the street, three or three and half as local residents would say, homes built between the 1870’s and 1880’s. Directly adjacent to those three is the circa 1769 former St. Mary’s Rectory, today an apartment building, and at the end of the block at the top of the street is the late 1860’s Henrietta Lewis House. Certainly together like this they present an eclectic mix of two centuries worth of residential architecture set along this quiet Historic District street.

Oh yes back to Spring, now if I can only see the buds on the trees and bushes start to open along with a couple of sailboats out on the Severn River today things will be just fine by me.

Have a good day and enjoy today’s sunshine,

Glenn
