*Mission... Granitize Place Castle. Formally named the Hickey Residence after its first owner, this 1912 house is better known as the Granitize Castle for obvious reasons. Its unique Queen Anne Revival style and location in the midst of apartment towers and multi-unit housing makes it a local landmark. Its informal title derives from former owner Floyd Colins, a sales rep for Granitize, a line of car care products. Hickey Residence... Photo by BillLongstaff, via Flickr
I am going to make our new home a victorian. It needs to be restored to it's natural beauty. It has been neglected for years. It was built in the 1800's and was probably a house to help slaves escape from slavery. So cool!!!!

I love the look but what stood out for me is the picket fence. It brought back a sweet memory of my great grandmother's house. She loved gardening and had a white picket fence that circled her property. She had a beautiful garden.
