An Afternoon at Allaire

The hubs and I love Historic Allaire Village and visit often.
A beautifully restored 19th Century iron producing community,
it was the home of James Peter Allaire,
a prominent 19th Century marine engine manufacturer.
Howell Iron Works
The front view of the Iron Works
The Church
The Hubs and I wanted to get married here,
my mom said "no".
The Blacksmith Building
Row Houses
The Daffodils were everywhere!!
The hubs and I love this tree,
we always try to get a picture here before we leave.
