Northeast? elevation of a French Baroque Revival chateau. This was the scene of a tragic murder of a young woman and the attempted murder of another by the caretaker in the early 1980's. South? elevation of the chateau. Fate of house has been touch and go for some time, but a restoration project has been in progress in recent years under its new owners. These photos were taken in the late 1980's, during one of its darker periods. Northwest? view of a Chateuesque home built for Francis and Harriet Pullman Carolan.  Inspired by the Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte in France.
