#ThursdayDoors A Door Worth Saving


I came across this house while traveling through Ohio on my way to Detroit. I’m not sure of the exact location, probably somewhere along Route 23. What captured my attention was the door. The house was entirely gutted for restoration and the only thing left intact was the door. The owners of this house saw the strength and beauty in this door and choose to save it instead of heaping it on the discard pile with the windows. I decided that such a door needed to be remembered so I snapped a picture.

This is my entry for this weeks #ThursdayDoors over at Norm 2.0 check it out and join the fun and add you link.

  1. If you go back that way, you’ll have to post a ‘before’ and an ‘after.’ I wonder what color it will be in its next life. 🙂

      What a great idea. I will have to look for it when I go back that way.

  2. That’s a great door / story. Some things are worth saving.

      Thanks for visiting. I loved your post on the Tobacco Barn. I had a friend who worked one year as a farmhand picking tobacco on a farm. It is hard work.

  3. Yes there’s definitely something that can be done with a nice door like that. Thanks for playing along again this week 🙂

  4. Great Thursday door post. Thank you for following my blog. Since I was born and raised in Detroit I always have to ask why drive to Detroit?.

      I am in Detroit often for my job and to visit friends who live there. I have come to love the people who live in Detroit and the city itself. There is a resilience and beauty I find in Detroit among the ruins of the industrial revolution.
