    Victorian House

    If you are ever in Bainbridge, don't forget to drive around the Historic District. You will see many beautiful Victorian houses.

    Bainbridge is beautiful in the springtime -- azaleas in full bloom are breathtaking!!!

    The house on the picture is known as The Callahan Home or "Steamboat House." It was built in 1907.

    By the way, I live just down the street. My house is much smaller and is not as fancy, but it is older -- built in 1900!!!
