614. Pretty

614. Pretty
Definition: (adj) attractive in a delicate way
Location Placed: The Allaire Mansion, Howell, New Jersey
Date Placed: 8/8/14 at 3:31pm

I took a very nice self-guided tour of the grounds and mansion. I think my favorite thing was the writing desk in the upstairs hallway/waiting area. I can just imagine someone writing at that desk (or a similar desk) in this house back during hayday of the Howell Works company. I also got a significant tutorial at the wood shop. Did you know that a number of the things made back then were first made in wood, molds were made, and then iron was poured to make the shape? If you did, you knew more about it than I did prior to visiting. Definitely a place worth taking a solid look at. I'll be going back again in the not too distant future.
