Rubbish Tuesday - Alexander Black House

(click on photo to enlarge)
The Alexander Black house in Blacksburg, built around 1897. We went in to take a tour but it was swarming with people so we didn't stick around. We'll save that for another day! For more info on Alexander Black CLICK HERE....linking with Roan's Rubbish Tuesday :)

  8. It reminds me of one of those "haunted" or "spooky" houses you'd find in the Disney movies. Must be something about it, though, to get all that attention!

  9. Beautiful home! Those are the kind of homes that are on Main Street in my husband's hometown. You lived in Willard for a bit, my husband and I went to college there at SMS which is now MSU. It's a small world.

  24. Unusual colors of paint. As others have stated, it would definitely be interesting to go through. Wonder if it smells musty and old, or has been really maintained well with old furniture and such. Interesting that the town is also named Black burg.
