David, I really enjoyed your blog.  The picture of the Mansion really caught my eye.  To think that this was someones home back in 1864, it was pretty high class stuff then.  I always wonder what it was really like to live that high on the hog.  Hope the weather is good for the flea market on the 29th.  Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for all the comments, I remember that in Junior High School we did a Field trip to this mansion, if I recall correctly there was a bowling alley in the basement. From the second floor you can see Long Island Sound, it truly is an amazing home ~ Dave
