This is a find. You can get a tour of what it was really like to be here in the very early days and how the settlers lived. The gardens are particularly lovely in summer.

Found this interesting to tour for 1/2 hour. Gardens were nice too but only 5 min walk around. If you have nothing else to do then go here.

Recently attended a Revolutionary War Re-enactment at this lovely 18th Century setting. Two homes to visit and beautifully restored gardens by Jekyll. Worth a Saturday or Sunday trip and can check out the lovely village of Woodbury Ct and its Antiques Trail at same time.
