Thursay Doors

On a recent trip to Frederick Maryland, I noted some interesting doors.  This colonial era town boasts many homes and shops from the 1700’s and 1800’s but it was the doors that really caught my attention.  The variety, decoration, color and sizes of them all contribute to making this an interesting place to visit.  The way some were redesigned to help modernize yet keep the historic look was equally interesting.

Historic Frederick has a quaint walking trail accented with trompe loeil paintings along the canal and a delightful tearoom, Serenity Tea Room near the end of the canal both which I’ve blogged about in the past.

The double doors on this lawyer’s office looks massive because of the surrounding woodwork.
This red six panel door is quite impressive with it’s intricate carvings.
I enjoy the look of this colonial era building with the setback door with transom light. Even the side and top of the exposed door jams are paneled.



I liked the idea of replacing the upper panels of the door on the left with glass. It still retains the colonial style while letting in more daylight.

Don’t you just love doors?  You never know what they open on to until you try them.

  1. You have an interesting life:) Some of my childhood friends had a house where could play on the attic, so I understand your fondness of it! Those two first doors are impressive, although they are all beautiful! Thanks for showing it to us:)
