Vermont Witch Windows


Witch windows: Vermont's spooky-ish architectural anomaly

New England frugality meets protection against broom-riding hags.

I've never seen a window placed like that! The house I'm living in has a small window near the ceiling (which does the same thing), but it's set in straight instead of at an angle like these ones. I can attest that they are great for both light and ventilation!
