Entrance Bench

A cast stone park bench under a tree canopy was positioned in the front yard of the home I purchased the year I graduated from SMU. In a neighborhood of similar-looking early 20th century homes, the park bench was distinct and inviting. I purchased the home with all of its contents except for the personal effects of the elderly owner. This included all the furniture, pots, pans, and even the icepick hanging on the bedroom door for protection. The contents were much appreciated as I was moving from a college apartment on Rosedale. But the seller insisted on taking the park bench. Maybe that is the reason I have such a soft spot for entry benches like this one by the front door of a White Rock Lake home. Benches are a welcoming symbol of the home and neighborhood. *Entrance Bench
