Lisbon Presbyterian Manse




Lisbon Presbyterian Manse





On the National Road, in Lisbon, Howard County, Maryland.

Note the interesting vents at the top of the house.

The Maryland Historic Trust Historic Sites Survey says the following about this building:

1. NAME

HISTORIC
Lisbon Presbyterian Manse
AND/OR COMMON

16000 Frederick Road (MD 144) (NW corner of MD 144 & Madison Street, formerly MD 94)

The old Presbyterian Manse for the Lisbon area of Howard County is located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Route 144 and Woodbine Road [now Madison Street (JKC, 1995)], facing south.

It is a four bay wide, one room deep, two story high, gabled roof (running east-west) brick (laid in Flemish bond and English garden wall brick bond) structure, laid on a stone foundation with wide brick chimneys inset into its east and west walls. Originally a two story high, two bay wide, one room deep, gabled roof (running north-south) brick (laid in English garden wall brick bond) kitchen with wide brick chimney and first floor cooking fireplace centered into its north wall was located north of the house on its west side. This was later connected to the main house creating an L plan, whose west wall lies flush with the west wall of the house and whose south wall rests side by side with the north wall of the house. The brick work between the kitchen and its connector runs together and its separateness is not discernible while the brick work between the manse and connector is very sharp. The gabled roof (running north-south) meets the gabled roof of the kitchen, creating a single gabled roof and intersecting with the gable roof of the main house.

In the restoration of the house, Mr. and Mrs. Peter McIntosh discovered that the present central rectangular entrance door, flanked by two vertical side lights and surmounted by a three light transom replaced what at one time were two central entrances. In addition the central hall and staircase was discovered to have been a later addition, the original staircase coming down to the northeast corner of the present dining room. In addition, a central dividing wall was discovered which may indicate that the building was at one time a duplex used for the minister and an additional staff or family member of the church. A change of brick on the north facade's exterior further indicates this change in the entrance door, which is flanked by rectangular, thermopane windows with six-over-nine lights, decorated with flat arched brick lintels and wooden sills which were added in the restoration of the house replacing the simple original window frames.

Beneath the first floor west window is an arched brick lintel under which at one time may have been a basement entrance, now bricked in and partially covered by the floor of the one story high, hipped roof, open porch which runs along the entire south elevation. It is supported by four wooden posts held by brackets and two pilasters, also held by brackets, applied to each side of the house's south wall. Two wide granite steps lead to the porch. Four second floor windows, similar to those described, rest above.

The east wall of the house holds two first and second floor rectangular, vertically aligned and proportionally scaled windows, similar to those described. The second floor windows hold six-over-six lights, rather than six-over-nine. Basement vents rest
under the first floor windows while two rectangular attic vents are centered into the roof line.

The west wall holds a single first and second floor window in its north bay similar to those described. Both the north and south elevations feature a fine bull nosed brick cornice. That on the west side of the north elevation has been chipped away to allow for the intersecting gabled roof of the kitchen and-itsconnector, further proof that at one time the kitchen was separated from the house. The attic of the house features 16" tongue and groove floor boards. The small one way attic staircase is located in the southwest corner of the house.

The exposed supporting beams for the kitchen wing's second floor are hand hewn and exposed, revealing the wide random width floors above.

A two story high frame addition has been added to the east side of the north wall of the manse. The east side of the kitchen-connector's gabled roof line extends eastward, creating a salt box effect. In addition a wide shed roofed dormer window has been added to this elevation of this roof line which holds two rectangular, double-hung windows with six-over-six lights. This newly added section of the house holds a first floor family room and bath with second floor hall, guest room and bath.

In the restoration of the interior the exterior brick north wall has been exposed in the upstairs bedroom of the early connector and the bath in the newly constructed addition. See Fig. 2

These features add interest and charm as well as structural information. The newel post of the upstairs indicates the mark where it

SiRiNCE -SELCUK/TURKEY



After visiting Ephesus in southwestern Turkey, do not miss the opportunity to visit the beautiful mountain village of Sirince.

From the town of Selcuk where Ephesus is situated, a winding road takes you through green countryside to this corner of paradise just eight kilometres away. Surrounded by forest clad hills, the village lies on the south and west slopes of a valley.
Sirince overlooks the Ephesus plain, whose olive groves, orchards, vineyards, and fields of tobacco and cotton stretch to the sea. After 15 or 20 minutes the road from Selcuk rises over a hill and winds down the other side into the village square. Our first objective in coming here was of course to eat! So before looking around Sirince, we headed straight for Artemis Wine House and Restaurant on the hill on the edge of the village. The restaurant is housed in a re-stored building that was formerly the village school and serves homemade wines and delicious food made from local produce. The wonderful views over the village and plain lend their own savour to the food.



Hunger satisfied, it was time to explore Sirince. The main street and square are shaded by great plane trees and lined by shops, coffee houses and restaurants. We sat for a while in the coffee house in the square drinking tea and chatting to the village muhtar (elder) Ali Vurmazdere. He is delighted that Sirince is becoming so popular with visitors, and hopes that tourism will reverse the fortunes of the village. Local inhabitants have been moving away in large numbers in recent years, both for economic reasons and because of problems like their childrn’sc education. The population has fallen from 840 in 1980 to 704 today. Some writers refer to Sirince as Ephesus in the Mountains, asserting. that Sirince - formerly K?rk?nca - was established in the fifth century after alluvion carried down by the Kucuk Menderes River and flooding made the ancient site unfit for habitation. Hearsay relates that the name K?rk?nca was later changed to Cirkince (the Ugly Place) so as to prevent others discovering this beautiful spot and moving here
When governor of izmir Kaz?m Dirik visited the village he was so charmed with K?rk?nca that he altered the name to Sirince (Charming Place).


The narrow stone streets are full of picturesque shops selling lace and other handicrafts made by local women. There are also stalls selling homemade soap and the local wines for which Sirince is renowned. Tobacco, olives, and peaches are also grown in the area, and tourism is becoming another important part of the local economy.
As we climbed up through the village, which rises on the slopes on either side of the river, we were fascinated by the old houses along the narrow streets. Sirince is one of the few places in Turkey to have preserved its 19th century texture intact. The ground and first floors are built of rubble stone and the second floors of lathe and plaster. The upper floors, which oversail the lower, contain the living spaces, while the ground floors consist of store rooms and stables. The window frames and eaves are decorated with flower, bird and leaf motifs. Handmade lace curtains hang at the windows.



Oleanders and other colourful flowers and shrubs grow luxuriantly in the gardens on either side of the lanes.Some of the houses have been restored and turned into pensions for over-night guests, so it is now possible to make Sirince a base for exploring the region. Sirince is within easy reach not only of Ephesus but other ancient cities like Priene, Miletus and Didyma.
Sirince is a place where visitors who want to get away from the beaten tourist track can enjoy the authentic village atmosphere, waking to the call of the cockerels, and participating in traditional harvest festivities in the vineyards and olive groves,’ he explained. Several local people have set up small restaurants in their gardens, some specialising in gozleme, a griddle bread with various fillings. It is unthinkable to leave Sirince without tasting this simple but delicious dish. e from the early 19th century.


You can watch the dough being rolled out, being filled with cheese, auber - gines, mushrooms or minced meat, and then cooked on the griddle over a wood fire. Accom - panied by a drink of cold ayran (yogurt beaten with water) it makes a wonderful meal.
The two churches in Sirince are now being restored. The Church of St John the Baptist was built in 1832 and is being restored by an American foundation under the auspices of Ephesus Museum. The second smaller church is also thought to dat
