Picture of the Day - Reid-Hamilton House at Night

Last night, using my iPhone-4, I shot this image of the historic 1903-built Reid-Hamilton House at 1301 Chestnut Street here in downtown Paso Robles. I walked my dog Tequila past this place both last night and tonight. It was damaged by the 2003 San Simeon Quake and condemned as a consequence and sat abandoned and crumbling for years thereafter. A couple of years ago, money has been poured upon the place expanding it well beyond its original footprint and design turning it into something much more grand than the original. Although this was not a restoration of the old place, per se, I'm pleased to see it stay alive even if in a new and more enhanced incarnation. The construction seems to be complete and landscaping was recently completed as well, using stones from the original building in the landscaping for retainer walls and such.
