The Mystery of the Bench

The bench that sits in the center arch of the garden wall at 'Spring Hill' was probably added after Henry Carnegie Phipps purchased the estate.  There is a second identical bench that sits buried in the woods about 100 yards from the one above.  Where it originally sat, how it broke and who moved it to its current location will probably remain a mystery forever.
