We call them a "widow's walk" and it is most of the time on top of the house.
Yes, Cathy. Sue explained to me that houses like these were by the sea and the wives would walk out there looking for her captain husband to return. Or something like that.
And buffy, thanks for the comment. Sue and I have gone to Baxter Springs twice and Galena in the last month playing tourist. Love the museums and the old buildings and houses. Also, when Sue was young she lived in Witchita, KS.
grew up in Kansas near Baxter Springs, used to have relatives there.
Great picture, beautiful house!!! Is 'the captain's walk' that funny little balcony which isn't really a balcony?!
Gorgeous ...!!!! thanks
