Now... I moved here when Sweet Mama was first diagnosed with her sinus cancer. I got here two days before the surgery and jumped into the role of caregiver right away. So I had no knowledge of the history of Macon...
Here is our afternoon!
I noticed in the above photo, when I downloaded it to the computer, that the above vendor is selling "Pot Roast Sundaes"! Who knew... Never got to it due to delays...but more on that later.
From there we when to the Woodruff House and took the tour of it! It sits on top of a large hill that over looks Macon.
Here is the view!
And our bus...Yep we drove up like we owned the place!
Check out the front door. This was all I could get because it was open. It was only a single door not a double...
Here are a few of the room. Notice the single beds...Sweet Mama has those beds since she was 12 years old! These are spool beds hand-carved by slaves...the spools look like spools of thread. Sweet Mama's are reproductions but still just as beautiful!
The house has three floors but we were only allowed on two. The third floor is considered attict and where the servants lived. Don't you just love this spiral staircase. It had a beautiful window at the top but it didn't show up in this picture!
Now on to the trees!Part two coming next!
