Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 22, 1872, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, July 22, 1872- Vaux, Mary, Gertrude, Marian, Lory Stoddard and I went up to Church's by the 10:40 train and returned in the evening. It was a magnificent day, the wind blowing freshly from the Northwest. After a nice dinner at his little cottage we went up to his new house which approaches completion. The upper story is plastered and I believe they intend to get into it this fall. It is certainly a beautiful house and commands one of the finest views of river & mountain in the country. Church devotes nearly his whole time to building his house, and with his peculiar talent has produced a satisfactory result. The color of the house on the outside by the judicious use of colored bricks with the stone is very harmonious and agreeable. It looks like an artist's work.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
