American

miraculous!

I don’t know. Is this weird? I think it’s weird.

  • The American Gothic House has a gift shop. You can get the folding umbrella in “house” or “window”.
  •  The American Gothic House website has a section of visitor photos in the traditional pose in front of the house. None of the visitors are as lean as the original models. Many are quite the opposite of lean.
  • There seems to be a pie stand inside of the American Gothic House.
    • FAQ – The pie stand is inside the living room of the American Gothic House, so why can’t we tour the rest of the house?  The pie stand was originally set up in the side yard of the house, but due to rain, wind, extreme heat, and the fact that bees love pie, it became much easier and safer to move the pie stand to a sheltered, climate-controlled spot. The house itself is a private residence, famous only for its exterior, and has never been open for tours. 
  • The pie maker painted the kitchen cabinets red.

  1. If the painting is famous for the exterior why would it matter what the inside looks like? And only skinny people can visit? And gift shops are only allowed at cool places like hotels? I think you are weird.

      Have you no curiosity, man? One of the most famous buildings in the country and you would not like to envision standing inside and looking out that window?

      And only skinny people can visit?
      You infer too much. Don’t be so touchy.

      And gift shops are only allowed at cool places like hotels?
      And at the Vatican. Apparently, you didn’t read the comments about the Duchess of Windsor bracelet.

      I think you are weird.
      I am weird but I think you are more weird than I am. But not as funny.

  2. I can understand why the pies are sold in the living room of the house, but the house is a PRIVATE residence. How would you feel if gobs of strangers wandered aimlessly through your own house; going through your belongings? If you are so intent on looking at the rest of the interior, give us your address. I’d love to go through your medicine cabinet and closets….

    • Am I advocating touring the house? The FAQ in this post about touring the house is from the website of the person who rents the house. The words are hers and I believe she posted this among other frequently asked questions (that’s what FAQ means, in case you were wondering) to avoid disappointing people who arrive expecting to see inside. She’s also the person who allowed Kohler to film part of the interior for their promotional video upon the occasion of a new kitchen sink.

      Stick around. I haven’t posted anything about my med cabinet or my closets yet, but if you want to see the inside of my refrigerator or all the different paint colors I tried out on the walls of my den, I’d be glad to point you to the links.

      It pains me to say this but the quality of commenter around here is really falling fast. I’m used to people who actually understand what they read.
