Expansive, well kept grounds greeted us as we pulled into the makeshift parking lot. Was glad to see it unpaved, retaining the inherent charm of this 'Grand Dame'. The Gothic exterior gable soared before us as we strolled to the front door. We were greeted by a self-confirmed yankee, who was delightfully knowledgeable about her history...both the good and not so good (namely her catching fire)...of this southern treasure! We were allowed by the gracious owners and residents to tour the lower level of this home and we're surprised and delighted to see many historical vestiges and artifacts adorning the several rooms. It would have been a special treat to visit the upstairs, but given the owner's residency, their request for privacy is completely understood and appreciated. Another topic, though an uncomfortable one...the house fire...provides another interesting page to this home's history. The restoration was done quite well and visually undetectable were it not for the shared story. Well worth the $25 entry fee!!
