Architecture Wednesday: Camden

So, since I am away from home this week, and since I am a lover of architecture, I thought I'd share some of my favorite Camden homes and buildings and sights and parks with y'all.
Let's roll:

One of many town squares in Camden.

A Pink house in a  row of white ones.

The one looks like it should be on Wisteria Lane.

Even Camden playhouses are pretty.

This one is right downtown, in the Historic District,
and yet it seems a world away.

What most people--okay, maybe me--think of,
when they think of Southern homes.


These folks are not afraid of color.


One of the large houses facing Rectory Square.

The Rectory Square fountain.

A very stately home across from the Square.

A side view.

One of the few all-bricks homes.

The Bloomsbury Inn, a Camden B&B.
In winter, after a snow, this looks like a picture
postcard.

A synagogue. In Camden!
The newer one is across town.

Out front of the synagogue.

Grace Episcopal Church.
I may not like what goes on inside some of them,
but I love looking at churches.

An old brick fence and gate.

One of many....many.....Crepe Myrtles in Camden.
See, Mitchell, Alice is here, too!

Another view of the tower at Grace Episcopal.
So, there you have a small guided tour of Camden, with some of it's lovely, historic homes, playhouse, gardens and churches.
It may be a Smallville, but it 'shore is purty.'

I'm glad you did this. I never went to Camden when we lived in SC. Very pretty homes and gardens! Thanks for the tour.

I love brick homes. Unfortunately due to earthquakes we can't have those here in Cali.

Positively bucolic....
You are a blessed man. Don't forget that it doesn't work out that way for all of us though...
Give Carlos a big kiss from me & hope you enjoy your time away...

Looks beautiful... I hope most of those branches stay on those trees after Hurricane Irene comes through this weekend!... Ugh!

P.S. I added your blog to my blogroll on Postcards from Hell's Kitchen! Cheers!

Wow, idyllic. Love the little path that leads to the synagogue. Very romantic with the over-hanging leaves.
