Grand Lady

I am always fascinated with old houses. They hold so much character and mystery. On our recent road trip, we came across another interesting old house.

This is the Ivy House.

It's a restaurant now, but I imagine it was a Grand Lady in it's heyday.

A picture inside one of the dining rooms.

The molding around the windows makes me think this house is pre-Civil War.

This Grand Lady has been around for quite a long time.

Have a great weekend!

Wow, what a beauty! I love looking at old houses. There's a town about a half hour away that has nothing but big old houses down it's main street, and thank goodness it's only 25 mph, because I like to really slow down and look at them without someone behind me honking their horn for me to speed up!
