Two plaques in harmonious colors decorate the double doors of Providence Hall House. On a backing of white pine and boxwood, lemons, golden delicious apples, yarrow, and sprays of oats with small Japanese black pine cones enliven these arrangements. Small fruit accents used on the roping above the door, wreaths on the windows, and roping on the railings lend a festive air to this lovely house.
