In celebration of National Architecture Week, I'm sharing a series of posts about architectural details in historic and charming downtown Grass Valley, CA.
Separated by a small one-way road off Main Street, the facades of these two buildings, seen below on Google Maps, are opposites of each other.
On the right is the historic Holbrooke Hotel, built in 1862. Its roofline curves up towards the sky at the front of the building.
Oppositely, the roofline on the left curves out toward the street.
