Weekend Jaunt

Hey! Welcome to the new address, and thanks for finding me!
Jim and I enjoyed a great time away to Colonial Williamsburg. My favorite thing was the Berkeley Mansion. It sits on the James River and is the birthplace of the 23rd President, William Henry Harrison.
At Berkeley the date of the building, 1726, and the initials of the owners, Benjamin Harrison IV and his wife, Anne, appear in a datestone over a side door. The early Georgian mansion is said to be the oldest 3-story brick house in Virginia that can prove its date. I found this to be so interesting! Hope you enjoy the pics!
