Historic House in Tempe


I used to live and work in the city of Tempe way back in the 80's and I used to pass by this house quite often.  At that time, I believe someone was still living there.  Now it has been declared a historic sight by the city.  This Queen Anne style house was built by Niels Petersen, a Danish immigrant who homesteaded the land a built this beautiful home in 1892.



It's a lovely reminder of a bygone era.

That is quite a red colour for a house, but I like the style.

1892! Gosh the old homestead looks so beautifully maintained Sharon, looks like it will be around for a while ✨

I'm glad it has protection and won't be knocked down for a condo tower or mall!
