While still in South Carolina (before the Biblical rains!) we also stopped at an historic plantation village called Historic Brattonsville. It was a very pretty setting and gave lots of good historical information.
|Very typical grand plantation house of the mid-19th century|
|I enjoyed talking with this women demonstrating weaving at Brattonsville|
We went on to two nights in Asheville, N.C. where it did rain most of the day. We managed to get up to the visitor center on the Blue Ridge Parkway and to the Folk Art Center. We had been to Biltmore twice before so we didn't go there. No pictures to share of this place. Asheville is always one of my favorite places.
Back in Atlanta, we visited one afternoon with one of my second cousins once removed, Dwaan Callaway Black. His mother and my father were first cousins. He shared some family stories and we took pictures of some family memorabilia that he has.
|These plates were a wedding gift to my Great Grandmother, Leslie whom I am named after|
|They were handed down to her son William R. and to his grandson, Dwaan|
|The bedroom set bought as a gift by Charles W. Hurst for his daughter, Leslie Jane and her husband, William R. Callaway|
|Under the marble top is the original shipping label|
|The bedside stand that goes with the set|
|At this point, we thought we were lost but about a mile up the road we found the paved road we needed.|
|A little overcast but beautiful all the same|
