Impressive grounds! The farm house, and stables, would have been posh by today's standards. The grounds, and statues are truly reminiscent of France per Katherine's notion. They had race horses, and that wasn't something that was evident until these photos of the grounds.
Wonderful blog, and am devouring it today, thank you!
