Anything for "free" may be subject to a little scrutiny, so I had to ask the docent why. Abingdon is doing its part to encourage tourism, she explained. With that, and a suggestion to ask her if I had any questions she returned to what she was doing before I walked in and let me take my time looking and thinking about the house and its history. I liked that because I have a tendency to linger in order to mull over the various items on display. I was able to read the explanations related to each room and look at the furnishings piece by piece. Thank you Abingdon.
