Take a short trip back in time by visiting this small medieval, transitional, gable style home of the Thelaballs. The journey back in time begins in \"King George's Parking Lot\" and continues along a charming, rustic path through a small wooded area. The house is situated on five and a half acres of land which includes a small woods and gardens of herbs, vegetables, flax, cotton, peanuts, and tobacco.
I was told that it's scarey to go there at night, that a lady ghost haunts the place. I wasn't lucky enough to go at night, nor did I get to see the lady ghost. I didn't get to learn anything about her during the tour, but then I went late in the afternoon and they were just about closing. So I would love to go back, ask more questions and learn more. Then I'd like to go back at night and hopefully meet the lady ghost.
The house is in excellent condition. Very little renovations or repairs have been done and left the integrity of the house intact. It's amazing to know that the period tour guides have actually cooked in the fireplaces in the house with the actual tools to be able to accurately describe the hardships of the women.
If you enjoy the history of the pioneers, of the people who made it possible for us to live in this country today and how they survived without all the "technology" of today, then you will enjoy this educational look into the past. I enjoyed it immensely and would definately go back to spend more time there and learn more. It's a minimal cost to tour the home and property and well worth the time and money.
