It should not come as a surprise that my first book review would be Sheila Ogle’s “The Pink House.” The charming home on S. Academy Street in downtown Cary is loved by so many people that it has become one of Cary’s Top 10 Places to Visit. Sheila’s charming home becomes the lead character in this book that tells a love story from the home’s perspective.
I couldn’t put the book down. It’s a fast-paced read that includes wonderful pictures and stories. My favorite story is about the top of the tower and how a minister would write his sermons in this room that has a view of downtown Cary. This special space has been a lovely location for children’s tea parties, most recently one of my darling granddaughters had the chance for a visit and to sit-a-spell as we imagined all those who had come before us.
Watch the video below filmed inside the Cary Pink House that features Darelyn (DJ) Mitsch who wrote a special memory about the home and won the contest to have her feature included in “The Pink House.”
Curious to learn who built the home? Want to know the story from the height of grand parties to sheltering the homeless to how a love story brought The Pink House back to being a showcase home in Cary? You will just have to pick up a copy today from Ashworth Drugs , Everything’s Better Monogrammed or at an event.
