Sumner House (1887) is the oldest home in Claremont, California.  This Queen Anne Victorian was the home of Reverend Charles Burt Sumner, once of the founders of Pomona College.  The house was moved to its current location, First Street and College Avenue approximately ten years after construction and serves as the anchor point of the southern perimeter of the college.  The home is owned by Pomona College and it is now used as a guest house for the college.

        Ollie, I just want to know what your “Home Owners Association” would say if you guy’s painted your house to match this one? ;-D> (and in all seriousness, this is a breathtakingly beautiful photo).

  5. Stanley, we have already tangled with the HOA over our paint scheme and the color of our house is far different than what the developer painted it. Thanks for the comment, I like this image too.

      Next time around simply submit two photos. One of the Sumner House and one of the color scheme you actually intend to paint your house. You then add a little tag line about your intention of painting to match one of the two photos. Which would they prefer? At that point you should be okay.
