Historic Bethlehem, PA

I finally got around to going through all my pics from Musikfest. This is just a small sampling of the beauty in Bethlehem. I'll keep my commentary to a minimum so you can enjoy the pictures. If you love old homes, a walk through this city provides plenty of eye candy.




















I love the colors on this one and hope to do ours like it someday....


























































































































































Beautiful working shutters!








A perfect sidewalk!

















Love this fence!!







My favorite house....

Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog. I have cousins who live in Hershey/Palmyra/Harrisburg area so I'm up that way often. We have a cabin in Snyder County near Reedsville State Park. It's in the middle of Bald Eagle State Forest, about an hour northwest of Harrisburg.

Great post, makes me want to visit! I love wandering around looking at homes, especially historic homes.
To my husband's dismay I have spent hours and hours and hours wandering around Gettysburg!
Now I have another area to drag him too!
All the best,
Eileen

Oh, how beautiful! Our town is a pretty new town, so we don't have very many beautiful old buildings to look at. I love going to old towns and looking at their gorgeous old homes. Thanks for the little tour of Bethlehem, PA. :)
