Hi Joe, please do feel free to use these for your classes, you just have to put somewhere in tiny type that you have my permission to do so, as they are copyrighted by me. I took them all. But I am HONORED that you might be able to help inspire students with them!

And Tru Dillon, love how you gave your comment a deep windowsill!

Hi Dominique,

Thanks for these beautiful images and your always insightful comments.

I was wondering if I could have your permission to access these for my high school American history classes -- they're far better than the grainy pictures my wife and I took when we visited in the 1990s.

I could move into that Apothecary room and stay there my whole life.

Well ... maybe not with that whole celibacy thing, but I could try.

Gorgeous and perfect.
Cass

I'm so glad you all are enjoying these posts--two more to go! Yes, I felt we all needed a breather.

But to get back to the political: these are exactly the sorts of places that need our support! And they are the first to get budget cuts when funding is tight. I'm hoping a whole new generation of people start to visit Hancock--and soak up the inspiration. I'm all for Traveling by Staying Home!

What a lovely series of posts. I completely agree with Warren re promoting U.S. staycations. Far too few people visit these treasures. Another place you might enjoy is Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont, just a few miles from Burlington. I visited there last weekend and was introduced to the concept of a round barn. This summer the barn is the site of an incredible, modern 3-D paper art exhibit. There's nothing like combining the best of the old with the new.

Wonderful pictures again. Ah, those 19th c. days of hardwood just there for the cutting and milling! And (back to the paints) those early 19th c. days when there was someone making paint every 75 miles, or so. Home grown American style. We had something really amazing going on in those days.
Love the tool rack. I hang mine up from a board that has nails every few inches. The tools hang by their necks between the nails. I always seem to have at least one too few places!!
The drying rack is also a no brainer...so why didn't I think of same?
Thanks again for a great week.

Dominique, t'is me..your "gotta get my wetsuit and head into the RI surf girl -Helene". I apologize for
being off-subject here but I just finished your Travel
and Leisure article and want to commend you for it.
I loved the flavor and the images you invoked and
the memories that cascaded over my thoughts like
an invigorating rain on a summer's day. Kudos!
Years ago we summered in Misquamicut where Sisco's store was the place to be for vanilla custard cones and Paddy's Wigwam had the best fritters. Lambs store carried the Drake's crumb coffee cake.
Keep an eye out for the restoration of Weekapaug Inn. We are heading to our favorite place- Castle Hill Inn- in two weeks. I'm kind of glad you kept that gem to ourselves. Still wetsuit shopping. Helene

This has been a great 3 days of beautiful sights and great conversation. Just what the doctor ordered.
Great suggestion from Warren on staying in the good ole USA for your vacation trips.
Especially after the last flight over the big ocean just did me in. Squeezed between 2 folks i didn't know, unable to get up for hours. I swore on return that was my last trip overseas.

Hi Dominique, I have loved this series of posts. Having been born in Northern Ohio (Shaker Heights), where the Shaker tradition was well respected--I even have a few pieces of Shaker furniture --my favorite is an armed child's chair. It is still perfect after all of these 150+(?) years. Thanks. Mary

These are really wonderful posts of a really wonderful place that represents a high water period in American country design. We all owe a big thanks to the foundation that took over and greatly restored these buildings that were really run down by the '70s.

As extraordinary as your images are, it is kinda sad that there are not lots of people in them visiting, spending money to pay to support this place. It really needs more 'boots on the ground' to keep places like this going. All over our country we have deserving places to visit.

Hey readers, how about 'buy American!' for your next vacation and go spend dollars at places like this?!
