Roy, great looking location, what did you purchase?   Our weather is too sketchy right now, will wait until it settles down.

Good morning, Roy Kelley the flavor of the architecture is certainly very close to what you'd find in New England, especially in MA....

Those are wonderful old historic sites, that I am glad are preserved in your part of the country, Roy.

Roy,

What wonderful historic sites you shared with us.  We would definitely visit the Union Mills, if our work found us near Union Mills.  A
