There’s a special type of beauty in a ginkgo tree during the fall. The fanned green leaves turn a vibrant, eye-catching yellow before they cover the ground in all their splendor. Along Southeast Second Street in the Historic Riverside District, the home of David and Christina Brown — built in 1871 by John Iglehart (of Iglehart & Taylor Attorneys and Counselors) — compliments the lush yellow fall color with its pale blue paint and stunning Italiante architecture. Each year, the turning of the gingkoes in front of the Browns’ home (which the couple have lived in for 25 years) catches the gaze of many, drawing in visitors to capture the beautiful colors in photos.
“It’s amazing. Our home becomes like a destination when the trees turn. There’s so many leaves and people just love the color,” says Christina.
