This is a full view of the Fireplace window for a Victorian house in the Hill section of Willimantic, CT. Considered among the best preserved group of Victorian's in the country, these proud ladies all have their specialties, some windows, some ornate stained glass, some porches and this a spectacular chimney. The fireplace window, commented on by Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) who had one built in his house in Hartford, CT was done so that he could watch the snow fall over a roaring fire... and yes, what a magnificent view.
