An Honor For Me; A Giveaway For You

You may recall this post from March, 2015, in which I shared that a photo of mine of Bacon’s Castle had been featured in Early American Life magazine. The editors had contacted me to ask permission to use it for the article after first seeing it here on These Days.

In our correspondence, I mentioned that my mother and her family lived in Bacon’s Castle during the 1920’s and 30’s.  The editor then asked if I would consider writing an article for the magazine about my family’s life at “The Castle”.

Of course, I jumped at the chance replied that I would. I never miss the opportunity to share my love of Bacon’s Castle with anyone willing to listen…or in this case, read.

The article is in the February issue, on new stands now. And let me just say that I consider it quite an honor to have my story published.


(Behind me is a collection of Bacon’s Castle memorabilia: a cross-stitch I did of The Castle, old postcards I’ve purchased on E-bay, a decorative plate given to us as a wedding gift, and a bag for the Bacon’s Castle Brand ham, once private labeled by a local ham company and sold at The Castle. There’s also a sketch of the house drawn by my great-nephew and stitchery by my niece.  Another niece also did a pastel of Bacon’s Castle for me, but it hangs in another location in our home.)

To celebrate my article being published, I’m giving away two copies of the magazine.  Simply leave a comment here on the blog, and your name will be entered.  The winners will be announced next week.

I’m so appreciative to the staff at Early American Life for allowing me to share a little of Bacon’s Castle with their readers.
