The Weld Boathouse

 The Weld Boathouse designed by Peabody & Stearns c. 1906 for Harvard University along the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  The building was financed by Harvard alum George Walker Weld.  Click HERE to see the Weld Boathouse on google street view.

Beautiful! I wonder why Peabody and Stern designed it in this style...doesn't look like any of the other old boat houses I've seen...so interesting.
Thanks for sharing.

I've admired this one, and how it looks on the Charles, since I was old enough to think---the interior is also to die for.

Interesting to see Peabody & Stearns in French manoir mode

So there never were busts on the keystone brackets over the windows flanking the front door?
