Sacramento's Cranston-Geary house

Sacramento Craftsman home

This past Wednesday, I mentioned Sacramento's Cranston-Geary House in passing. An enormous, beautiful, and somewhat unorthodox Craftsman home just a few blocks from my house, it's one of Sacramento's large number of National Register of Historic Places structures and is, from what I've heard, completely restored to its original luster inside and out. I wouldn't mind taking a peek inside and posting a photo gallery here, if I can get around to contacting the owners.

Interesting fact: the architect, George C. Sellon, was California's first state architect - as well as the designer of San Quentin Prison. Thanks to Sacramento Historic House for that tidbit!
