The farmer's market has returned to its winter quarters

After a one-week hiatus, the farmer's market has reappeared in its usual winter quarters, the senior center on Mifflin Street.

A long line of people showed up for the breakfast treat, biscuits and gravy with eggs and spinach.

All manner of good things to eat were on sale.

Spot the snow angel

Seen on cap square this afternoon, with a fresh dusting of snow. Must've been made just before this morning's snowfall.

Gorham Street Castle

This turreted house on Gorham was made from stone salvaged from the demolished Walker Castle. In the AHI database it's even called Walker House (or Frank G. Brown House, they're a little ambivalent about what exactly to call it).

This photo doesn't do justice to the size of it. The upper floors towered over me even while I stood in the middle of the road to snap this picture.

Collins House on Gorham Street

A beautiful old craftsman-style house that was most recently a well-known bed and breakfast. I don't know what it's used for at the moment. It appears to be vacant.
