    Those are some beautiful homes. We have some great historic neighbourhoods in Saskatoon with gorgeous brick houses as well, although they get expensive to heat when it’s -50 like it is right now. Given the choice though, I’d certainly live in one of them.

    The Village of Owego in Upstate NY has the largest Historic District in the State with some of the most well preserved buildings from the mid-late 1800’s. There’s a few for sale as well! http://www.visittioga.com/Historic-Buildings-/-Landmarks/
