Thursday Doors – Lake Springfield

Lake Springfield (Illinois, USA) is a 4,260 acre (17.2 km²) man-made lake on the south part of the city. The lake boasts 57 miles of shoreline. It was built during the time period of 1931 – 1935.  Original lake cabins are a rarity these days, as most have been torn down and replaced with “McMansions”. One of the original cottages built in 1936 still stands on a small cul-de-sac. I took a picture of both the rear door, which faces the lake and the morning sun, and the front door , which faces a small park and the setting sun.

Next door to this cottage is a house built in the ’80’s and for a treat I am also including the front door to that one…


Thursday Doors is a weekly feature inaugurated by Norm 2.0 allowing door lovers around the world to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos. Be sure to check out his site for doors!

    1. Thank you Jean! Painting will wait until cooler less humid days… Well, unless those cooler days also bring a bit more wind, then I’ll have to be out in the sailboat! Maybe that’s why nothing ever gets done around here… 🙂
