Editor’s Note
Is it because I live in New England that I find nothing at all odd about people inhabiting houses that practically smell of the past? It has been my privilege, over the years, to have stayed in such haunts: one house with a bedroom door that had been shut, decades earlier, the beloved’s hair still caught in a silver brush on the dresser; a summer cottage with turn-of-the-century wicker and each little bedroom still with its own corner sink.

The people who buy very old houses do so out of love, and know that they can change only so much. It is impossible to get fully caught up in the frenzy of modern life when you live in an 18th-century house—hallelujah for that. In this issue, find tradition in picket fences and the oldest frame house in Tennessee, or bathrooms with nostalgic design. But there’s practicality and comfort, too.
