She Doesn’t Look A Day Over 300

Those of you who know me personally, or have been following my blog for awhile, know of my connection to historic Bacon’s Castle in Surry County, Virginia. (If you’re new here, please click on the link under categories to read previous posts.)

This grand old home has been getting quite the recognition recently because she’s celebrating her 350th birthday this year.

Last Sunday, she was featured in the Richmond, Virginia paper, and just yesterday, this was the article in our Daily Press.

Motor Man and I paid her a visit yesterday, along with some dear friends who had never been there. It’s always a treat to tour the house, but especially so with folks who are seeing her in person for the first time.

All the publicity must be paying off: she was a busy place yesterday.

Whenever I’m at Bacon’s Castle, I try to imagine the life my mom, her parents and her siblings lived here. I think of them walking in the yard, working the fields, the children playing and climbing the trees…

It’s so nice to see the Castle getting all this well-deserved recognition. She’s special, and I hope she  survives to celebrate many more birthdays.
