If you have a home in the Catskills or Hudson Valley upstate NY areas you may have a front door painted red. I was curious, as to the meaning of a homes front door painted red, as Kellogg's Painting does paint a lot of doors red in the Catskills and Hudson Valley New York areas.
Going back in time a homes front door painted the color red meant welcome. Tired travelers using horse and buggy would know that they could stop in your home and rest, as they would be welcomed.
This Hudson Valley homes front door was painted red by the painters at Kellogg's Painting in Leeds, NY.
