There’s something so enchanting about an old stone house. They are all over the place, and since they are made of stone, they seem to last forever. I profiled The Old Stone House in my own hometown not too long ago (you can see that post here).

The name “The Old Stone House” is so commonly used for historic homes made from stone that one could do a entire blog post of old stone houses. So… I thought I’d look up some other Old Stone Houses around North America and around the world and put them together in a blog post.

Have a look at what I found…

(That’s the stone house at the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie – it’s now an interpretive center)

Have a nice day!
