Window Views - VOLT windows

This mansion was built in the 1890's by the six daughters of Ezra Houck, a wealthy Frederick financier. The sisters lived in the 8,000 square-foot mansion for 30 years. In 1924 it became a professional building. Now it is the VOLT Restaurant, established by chef/owner Bryan Voltaggio, who left Frederick to pursue a career as a chef; and after success in New York and Washington, DC returned to establish VOLT. For more information see the VOLT website. Another VOLT window is posted on Lew's favorites.

Great building with great doors and windows. I love the Volt story, of the chef coming back to Frederick to open a restaurant. When I get back to visit, I'll have to check it out.
