The Hermitage

Within a days drive from us is the historic house called The Hermitage. My mother took me years ago as a teenager. I enjoyed it then but even more now. I appreciate the history and the architecture since I studied both in college. The house itself was built in the 1700’s with later additions to it. One of these was the stone kitchen with a second floor billiards room. I just love the exterior rock and cement construction and also the ivy dripping from the gable roof.

  1. I love going to tour old houses. It’s something my Mom and I always did on vacations – and still do occasionally.
    I love the Hermitage. I remember going through it as a child. Very pretty.
    Love your picture!
