A Day Trip


Today we packed a picnic and took a drive to see this grand old lady.
Benvenue was built in 1844 and remodeled in 1889.

The plantation (house grounds) include a kitchen, a one room school room, smokehouses, a former post office, and several other outbuildings including a green house.

She's privately owned -- luck family.
I should have baked a cake to take and been brave enough to knock on the door.
