This beautiful old Mansion is very near Food City where I shop for groceries. There was a detour so I had to go past this beautiful old house. I couldn't resist taking photos. Once you step on that land, everything has a different 'feel' to it, as if you are in another time. This warm weather is allowing me to get out and take some nice photos ;)

This is a gorgeous place! I am from the same town.
And the Sycamore Shoals State Park is gorgeous also. They have an old fort and do reenactments every summer.

I love going to the Fort in the Summer and walking around ;).
