I go to this place when I'm in the Alice whenever it is open. It is an amazing building and snapshot into the past. The design of this home is really quite remarkable and if I were to build again I'd build this!!

While picking up your foodie delights look around this typical residence for governors in Colonial times, and yes, even for Royalty!
