Theme # 191 "Museum" #2

I tried to visit this museum two or three times before but it has always been closed. Today we had good luck. "The Manor of St. George" and its 127 acre site located in Mastic, NY and is now a public museum and park. It constitutes an important chapter in the history of these United States and the Colonies that preceded them for a span of over 261 years. It is an action-filled chapter that revolves basically around the life of Col. William "Tangier" Smith, first Lord of the Manor of St. George. A complete history of this site can be found here:
It is a very interesting read if you have the time.

  1. A wonderful Period Piece Portrait Eddie.

  2. Beautiful! I love the colors and how you've set the house a bit off center.

    The best part of your linked story is that the house was saved from land developers and made into a museum.

  3. Interesting story and beautiful image. The colors are gorgeous.

  4. As usual you have captured a gorgeous image. I love your lighting and colour mastery.
