825 Albany Street, ca 1925 and 828 Albany Street, ca 1908

     Albany Street is the location of a well-known local landmark, Lovers Oak.   The tree is believed to have gotten its name from Native American tales of young lovers secretly meeting under its branches.

     825 Albany Street, a Colonial Revival - Georgian, has the original oak floors throughout, wainscoting in the dining room and built-in cupboards.   This home provides beautiful views of the winding branches of the live oaks.

     Directly across the street is 828 Albany Street, a Folk Victorian - one of the three Folk Victorians on this year's tour.  The woodwork in the house is all original, and be sure to notice the beautiful curved pocket doors that lead into the parlor.
