Mystery At The Castle

As Motor Man and I were leaving Bacon’s Castle last Sunday at the close of the “Romance At The Castle” event, I recalled this picture of my late Aunt Lucille that was taken of her standing on the old mill stone at the front door.

So I asked Motor Man to take a picture of me, standing on it.

Much has changed about the entrance since the photo of Aunt Lucille was taken: the steps are different, the porch has been removed.

But, is there something else different?  Is that, in fact, the same mill stone?

I just always assumed that it was the same one, but it certainly doesn’t look like it when comparing these two photos.

Marshall and I know a couple of folks with ties to the house who may have some answers. We’re going to do a little investigating to determine if we can solve this mystery.

Stay tuned…
