While the town of Glenmoore, Pennsylvania, may not be on your radar as a tourist destination, we’ve found a schoolhouse conversion nestled near a 30-acre nature preserve and less than an hour from Philadelphia that is sure to move it up the getaway list.

Glenmoore does have a nature preserve, state park, and a few other things nearby for quick afternoons of fun, and is about 49 minutes up I-76 to Philadelphia if you’re looking for more citified shopping, dining, or sightseeing. (more…)

historical shelterIt’s not often that we are able to bring you a historical shelter that is a) close enough to be able to attend an open house, and b) is having an open house so you can actually go see it in the flesh.

Today, you’re in luck, because we have an adorable historical storefront that could be commercial property, but is currently staged and used as a home — in the cute little East Texas town of Golden.

Close to Mineola, as a home, it manages to give up both a farmhouse country feel and an industrial loft feel at the same time. (more…)
