historic house tour: gunston hall
Sleet and freezing rain couldn't stop our little group from making its way to Gunston Hall ~ and by the time we got there the weather had cleared and it was just (darn!) cold and windy. Built in the 1750s, Gunston Hall was the home of George Mason, one of the crafters of the Constitution. It has some of the most extraordinary woodworking of any Georgian House I have seen. Unfortunately I couldn't take photos inside, so the only two images here of the interior are scanned from postcards ~ but you get the idea.
