my mom just informed me that the previous owners of this house (McCoy) are some how related to me on my dad's side of the family. i would love to one day have this house back in the family :)

Greetings, Ashley, and what fun information this is! Exciting, no doubt! =)

I think you need to look into purchasing the house! It's for sale, you know! ;)

That is really very neat! Maybe you could contact the owners and see if they'd let you at least explore the insides! ( being that you are related to the McCoy's and all.) Oh my word, how great it would be to see inside. I bet there are so many beautiful room, and secret places too. I wonder if there is a basement? I'm almost positive that there is.

Thanks for sharing this with me. Keep me posted on the happenings! =)

I hope this evening finds you well.

All the best,

Mary Alice

This should be my home! Michael

MaryAlice on March 11, 2010

It should be mine too, Michael! ;)

Considering it's great size, I believe we could probably share it!

Thanks for your visit!

Friendly greetings from Georgia,

Dear MaryAlice, what a magnbificent southern estate, reminds me of Tara in Gone with the Wind. The South is such a rich treasure chest for beautiful arcitecture and you are so lucky to be in the middle of it all. This is a masterpiece and as you say, it is amazing it was spared in the battle during the Civil War. I hope you can post more photos of all these estates,of course you are busy with all these peachy icecream flavors , go moose tracks!!. Which one of the moode tracks is your favorite, vanilla or chocolate? Hope things are just fine with you and you keep up with all fan mail you receive. wish you all the best, my dearest Mary Alice and stay in touch/Harri

MaryAlice on March 19, 2010

Greetings, Harri, and thank you so much for visiting this splendid old ante-bellum home! Is it truly magnificent, isn't it? I'm so happy that you enjoyed it. Yes, the south is quite a treasure chest indeed, and I am so very lucky to have some of these beautiful gems nearby.

Moose tracks? Did you have to go and bring that up tonight? If I had to choose, I'd NO DOUBT go with the chocolate! Need you even ask? What about yourself? What's your flavor of choice?

Yes, all is well with me, and I hope things are groovy with you too. Tomorrow is my day off, and I can't begin to express how happy this makes me. To top it all off, I think ( hope) that it's suppose to actually be a beautiful, sunny day! It almost seems to good to be true. :)

I hope you have a super wonderful Friday too, and thank you SO much for stopping by to check on me tonight. Your visits are always so greatly appreciated here.

Happy Ice Cream wishes to you always,

Mary Alice

In the '90 I made some trips in the USA and visited some of these residences. It was quit impressive to learn more about the history. Very good photography, MaryAlice. Best regards, Annelies

MaryAlice on May 18, 2010

Thank you again for your interest and kind words.

Best regards from the USA,
