Richville, New York - Part 2

I was exploring the small town of Richville, New York, which sat about midway between Gouverneur and Canton. I discovered that they were big enough to have to their own fire department:

And some friendly old homes along the main drag:

Many of these sat right up alongside the road, a remnant of the days before cars and snow plows.The snow plows of today must surely make life difficult though there was only a small snow bank for me to see on the day I was there:

This house had yellow trim, a yellow chimney and leftover Christmas decorations:

And there were some rather grand estates:

Some yards showed tree damage from a recent ice storm:

And some homes were not well maintained at all:

I turned back toward Route 11 to make my way home and passed this friendly old country home:

And this old home with a giant wrap-around porch:

The last house I passed before turning onto the highway was this one, looking for all the world like a normal, comfortable family home. But I had not yet found a place to let the dogs out and had many more miles to go before I reached home. I'll post more tomorrow:
