I last photographed Washington, Illinois back in August of 2019, and I was passing through so I thought I was take a look around. My grandfather helped dig the basement of the church above with his team of horses back in the early Twentieth Century.
This house nearby unfortunately has suffered a recent fire.
I still think the road leading out of the south side of town has some of the most beautiful Queen Anne houses in the Midwest, and I’ve featured them before all the way back in 2009. This one above is one of the more simple examples. The one below is actually the example I use for the Queen Anne style, and it has received a slightly different paint scheme since the first time I photographed it.
