Painted Ladies could refer to “Ladies of the Night” in the Wild West, or it is a reference to Victorian and Edwardian homes that have been painted in three or more colors to accentuate the detail of the workmanship on these beautiful old homes. The term “Painted Lady” was not used to describe homes until the late 1970’s.

The Lennox House Bed and Breakfast, a Queen Anne Victorian built by the “poor” Lennox brother, John, has been well taken care of in its 120 year history. The stained-glass window that graces the dining room was a gift from brother William, and cost more than the price of the home when it was built in 1890.
