During the Civil War, the mansion was occupied by Union General James H. Wilson. He used the location while he planned a raid to destroy Confederate factories and munitions in Selma, Alabama. Fortunately, the home survived the war intact.

a bevy of pretty beauties greet us at the front door
The mansion is decorated for the season with greenery, fruit and treats. Downstairs there is a formal parlor, dining room and a smaller sitting room.
One of my favorite bedrooms is the children's room with its canopied baby bed.
There is also a grandmother's room...how thoughtful and so cozy!
The kitchen is detached from the main home....so there is less danger of the home burning down.
There was a roaring fire in the hearth. The table was set. Gingerbread cookies were on the menu.
Everything was cozy and nice.
