Open House

 This weekend is "Christmas at Arlington."  Each room in the house is decorated for the holidays and there is entertainment and refreshments. It was a perfect day to take a tour. 

The Greek Revival style antebellum home, located in Birmingham, Alabama, was built between 1845 and 1850. The house was not damaged during the civil war because Gen. James H. Wilson established his headquarters there while he planned his raid on Selma, Alabama to destroy confederate factories and munitions located there.

  2. I bet this takes you back. Just seeing those big dresses makes you realize what a different era it was. Sounds like a fun tour to put you in the mood to finish that decorating.
