The Gargoyle House

The Gargoyle House

This is what I refer to as the Gargoyle House. It is my favorite house in all of Atchison, Kansas - and there are quite a few spectacular ones in the historic homes district - but this one holds a special place in my heart. I love it's lovely brick, it's wrap-around porch, it's gables and tiny balcony. There's only one problem....it's the GARGOYLE House! It has two metal gargoyles that sit atop the roof-line. The gargoyles have been on the house forever, to my knowledge, and they are the one thing that I would change about this house, if I were to live there. :) I don't do spooky and those gargoyles are definitely spooky! But isn't the house just gorgeous???
