I kind of get the feeling I’ve posted this one before but I love it.

Maybe it is the market basket on the porch. The clotheslines or eerily empty street. The lovely architectural detail or pretty little fence in front of the house on the left (the house on the right seems to have copied the same style).  Dunno, but I like it.  Hope others do too.

The “Monkey Wards” (what my dad called it when I was growing up) on the right is certainly not the flat-roofed monstrosity I remember from when I was a kid (was located where Target is now for those who are newer to the area).

Nice to see that the Eureka Theater hasn’t really changed. Folks have actually been working for a while now to restore the theater and the volunteer effort is coming along quite nicely. Learn more about the restoration effort and how you can help HERE.
