Best doors in Winston-Salem

The key is to commit to the right color...the blog spied these doors while walking Thursday evening in an enigmatic Ardmore neighborhood bounded by Peters Creek Parkway and Interstate 40...not the quaint Ardmore of cute little cottages inhabited by medical students and Birkenstock-wearing academic types, but the original working man's Ardmore of Crafton Heights. It turns out that we were walking past the oldest homes in Ardmore, as several on Corona Street and Sunset drive date from 1910. The blog will have more to say about this topic in a subsequent posting, but it was stunned to learn from the neighborhood association website that approximately 2000 structures built before 1956 (mostly small houses) in Ardmore are listed on the National Historic Register. That's a whole lot of lead paint that needs to be's entirely possible that the existence of Ardmore is one of the primary factors responsible for poor school performance in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools.
