This is another historic building in Paris, Ontario. Built in 1845 as a modest two story home of Hiram Capron, the founder of Paris. In 1887 it was purchased by industrialist John Permanvian, who turned it into a Victorian mansion. He willed the building to the Presbyterian church, but by the 1970s the church could no longer afford to maintain it, so it was sold. In 1987 it was turned into a modern retirement home, but preserved its original character .

I am always a big fan of old architecture and castles.
This has clear European roots, lovely architecture picture.
We see very clear the lovely rounds of the building, also nice depth and perspective.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Another jewel! (Stop me when that word becomes repetitive). Beautiful designed house and the light and colors are spectacular. There is a house near me that looks a lot like this, but in dark grey stone. I must try and get out to photograph it soon for a comparison. I know its no as impressive as this, but the same idea. Lovely shot, I love your gallery!
All the best
