Love the tidewater style and side profile of the John Poole House (ca.1793). This style, largely influenced by homes built in the early 1700s on the eastern shore of Maryland, is most typically characterized by the double chimneys and the longer sloped rear roof line. I wonder if old John Poole threw any New Years parties here!?
