Exercise with family & friends while learning Roseville history…In December, city workcrews installed colorful pedestrian signs throughout the Riverside Avenue Streetscape project area. The seven signs present historical tidbits related to Downtown Roseville. Each sign provides two artwork panels that mimic the orange crate artwork popular in California some years ago. Pedestrians walking along Riverside Avenue will now have the opportunity to learn a little bit more about Roseville’s past. The “History Mile” signs were designed by Lisa Wood and Dave Piches and fabricated and installed by Ellis & Ellis Sign Systems.

SETTING: Calvert is a city of about 1,400 residents in east Texas, roughly in the middle of the triangle formed by Dallas, Austin and Houston. This house is on a corner in the city’s historic district, a section of homes and low-lying businesses dating back to the late 1800s. There are a few shops and restaurants along Main Street, including a European-style chocolatier. For more options there is Hearne, a city about nine miles down the road. The closest big city is College Station, home to the main campus of Texas A&M University, about 45 minutes south.
INSIDE: The living areas — a living room (with bay window), dining room and den — have 13-foot ceilings and hardwood floors. The kitchen, which wasn’t added until the mid-1950s, has a breakfast room off of it, and off the breakfast room is a sun porch. One of the bedrooms has an outside entryway, and is currently used as an office. It shares a bathroom with the master bedroom, which has a gas fireplace and a bay window. The third bedroom is across the entry hall. A tower on the front of the house, originally used to let out hot air in the summer, has been sealed up. The former carriage house — now a two-car garage — has a second level used for storage.
OUTDOOR SPACE: A front yard, a front porch, a backyard and a brick patio shaded by live oaks
TAXES: $1,400 (approximate)

HOW MUCH: $289,900

SETTING: This house is on a residential block in East Falls, a neighborhood in Northwestern Philadelphia along the banks of the Schuylkill River. (The neighborhood was named for a group of falls about a mile west of this house, submerged when the Fairmount Dam was built four miles downriver during the early 19th century.) The Schuylkill River Trail, a multi-use path projected to run 130 miles once completed, is about a half-mile from the house, and continues along the edge of the river through the eastern section of Fairmount Park. The neighborhood’s main commercial street, Ridge Avenue, is about a block and a half from this house.
INSIDE: The house was built around 1910, but stripped to its party wall and renovated by the current owners about three years ago. On the main floor is an open-plan living and dining area, as well as a kitchen. Twelve-inch pine planks held down with hand-cut nails run through the living area. Upstairs are the bedrooms. The biggest, at the front of the house, has southeastern exposure, and all of the bedrooms feature closets and built-in cubbies designed by one of the current owners, a carpenter.
OUTDOOR SPACE: A brick patio and garden with raised beds, accessible from the kitchen.
TAXES: $1,227 a year

WHAT: A two-bedroom one-bath house on Wineglass Mountain
HOW MUCH: $279,000
SIZE: 1,698 square feet
PER SQUARE FOOT: $164.31
SETTING: This house is set on 20 sloping acres on Wineglass Mountain, where the southwestern end of Livingston fades into the Gallatin National Forest and Yellowstone National Park. Livingston is a city of about 7,000 on the Yellowstone River. The area is popular for its outdoor activities, but the city also supports an active arts community; a fly-fishing shop, in business for more than 70 years, is two blocks from about seven different galleries. Downtown is about 15 minutes away.
INSIDE: The house was built in 1998, with a log-sided exterior and knotty pine interior. On the main level is a great room with cathedral ceilings, a wood-burning stove and a wall of windows facing east toward central Livingston and the Crazy Mountains (or, for short, the Crazies, as the locals say). The kitchen cabinets have nature scenes burned into them, all done by one of the house’s owners. Two of the bedrooms are downstairs. Upstairs, there’s a lofted sleeping area that serves as a master bedroom, taking advantage of the top set of windows in the great room. Next to it is an office area.
OUTDOOR SPACE: Twenty acres with mountain views.
TAXES: $1,235 a year.
