The Architecture of Historic Marietta, PA

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Select Professionals, Lancaster PA

I have written a number of posts about Historic Marietta, PA, including the Christmas Candlelight Tour and the scenic Breezy View Overlook.  One of the reasons Marietta is such a treasure is its remarkably diverse historic architecture.

Marietta, PA

This is a log and stone home I restored in the early 1980s.  The upper log portion of the home is dated 1801.  The earlier stone part of the house was originally a one story building dating from the 1700s, before records were kept in the borough.

    Old Town Hall Museum, Marietta, PA

The restored Old Town Hall Museum with its working clock tower.  The original jail is underneath the first floor.

Union Meeting Hall, Marietta, PA

Center Squeare, Marieta, PA

Marietta's Center Square.  Formerly the home of Mary Creswell, a member of the Marietta Restoration Association.

Brian, What incredibly beautiful photos and historic buildings. I know I was born in the wrong century for when I gaze upon these fine old masterpieces, something stirs in my soul and a great peace washes over my inner being. Kind of like the feeling of stepping into one's home after the end of a long and stressful day or out of a wild storm.

The stone and log house you restored is very unique and beautiful....I've never seen log and stone brought together like this before and somehow, now that I see it , it genuinely works.

Lenn, the remarkable thing is that almost all the homes shown here can be found on one street.  A good part of the borough is now an historic district.

Jo, sometimes I think I was born in the wrong century as well.  I do love the old homes and the hand-fashioned materials that were used.

I know exactly what you mean when you say that you feel a peaceful feeling wash over you when you enter one of these special homes.

Brian, These historic homes and buildings are absolutely beautiful.  I love seeing older architecture and am facinated by the many different styles.  The home you restored is quite a suprise, I've also never seen the two together and it does work well.  Thank you for sharing these.

Carole, when I first started work on this home, it was totally covered over with a concrete-like plaster over the whole house.  It wasn't until I had started chipping away at the plaster on the second floor that I realized it had original logs underneath!

Dottie, in the last year or so I have kept my camera in the car at all times so I could take photos of worthy old homes wherever I discovered them.
