      The very large Victorian homes often had carriage houses….used to store the carriages and animals…sometimes par to the carriage house was for staff…always interesting to see such large structures as part of the “estate”. Thanks for stopping by!!

    Such a fine piece of workmanship, this carriage house. I love the brick work, especially the designs above the windows and front door. Those doors on the upper level look precarious. But that’s the interesting thing about these old buildings, they make us think. Great photo, Kirt.

    Striking image. Some stories in there.
    There’s something about it that reminds me of a smug, contented house cat sitting sideways with shoulders and head on the right and hind quarters on the left. (squint and you’ll see HA HA.) Maybe it’s because the structure looks confident, solid, and relaxed.

      Good question…..a carriage house is a building that was used to store the carriages (before cars) and often had part of the structure for housing the help on an estate and or horses used to draw the carriages. In the Midwest of the US they were located at the back of an estate and the homes were typically large Victorian mansions. Only the very wealthy of that era had them. This particular one has been restored to its former glory by the city of Grand Rapids and is part of an estate that is now a museum .
