Harrisburg Row Houses

Back at the beginning of our Pennsylvania trip in Harrisburg there was more than the Capitol to delight the eye.  Here's a short peek at what I thought was an interesting neighborhood just a few blocks away.

In the Shipoke district the historical townhomes are a painter's (and photographer's!) dream.  If the colors alone doesn't do it for you, check out the ornamental work up top!

Just around the corner the 100 block of Conoy Street is known as Pancake Row, after the Pancake family that owned a lumber mill in the area. The lots were acquired by Alfred Pancake in 1870 and used as rental units for employees of the mill. The whole neighborhood is lovingly restored and every front step has a little design story to tell.

Nothing like these in Wisconsin, if they once existed they are long gone.
