Burlington 2 for 1

This diminutive building jumped out at me the first time I saw it. At the time I couldn't stop, but I've had "Burlington Brick ??? Route 4" written on a piece of notebook paper for years.

When I finally looked into it, I found that the structure was once the town records building and was was built in 1906. It now belongs to the Chamber of Commerce.

Route 4 is a very busy road, and this building stands right by a curve. People actually stopped to let me run across, which just blows my general view of western Connecticut right out of the water. (In other meta-blogging news, if you zoom in on this picture you can see me taking the photo, reflected in the window.)

And while I was there I found this, which had no plaque or sign, but if it's not a schoolhouse I'll eat my hat. And all my hats are knit winter caps, except for one rather large and plastic-y spring rain cloche, so none of my options would be pleasant.
