So Wednesday I headed to DD#1 so we could head up to Seneca Falls NY. DD#2 was driving from the Boston area to meet us there. On the way we were slowed for roadwork and this just stuck me funny.....look closely. Seems in addition to growing corn, they are growing railroad crossing signs!
And then we arrived in Seneca Falls, NY. What an adorable little town. Victorian homes and that old time feel.
We stayed in a carriage house. It was adorable and very nicely appointed. Big baskets of petunias greeted us on the porch. (more on the inside later)
Across the street was this episcopal church. It is dubbed the most photographed church in New York. It was on a an "I Love NY " brochure some years ago and it draws shutterbugs...believe me there was an unending stream of cars and people with cameras.....or maybe they were chasing Pokemons! It is quite stunning from the other side of the canal. This view does not give it justice at all.
The church really had some beautiful stained glass windows. Walking tours are available to view all the windows from the inside.
This is a photo from the internet of the view from the other side of the canal.
Now let me tell you a little about Seneca Falls. There is a common belief, although never confirmed by write Frank Capra, that Seneca Falls was the inspiration for Bedford Falls in the movie "It's a Wonderful Life". So much so that there is a museum dedicated to the movie. Although close by, we did not go.
Could this plaque have inspired Capra? Locals think so.....
