I'm visiting Abbeville, SC today and we are walking down North
Main Street one mile on one side of the street, crossing, and coming
one mile back. We will pass by 32 of the most beautiful old homes!
I've driven this mile many times over the past thirty years and always
said some day I was going to park the car and just walk by each one.
Today is the day! Please join us on our walk. (This is a long post.)
At the beginning of N. Main is the Burt - Stark Mansion. Jefferson
Davis held his last war counsel here where it was agreed the cause
was lost. Lots of history is in this house. Yes, this is a very old town.
Can you see the little doors that open under the windows upstairs?
What a welcoming front door!
A most inviting door!
I love this green home. My first house as a new bride was green!
another view of the porch.
This is a bed and breakfast. I couldn't remember the name of the
other one in town, so I won't post the name of this one. But what
a lovely home with beautiful grounds!
pretty good about now!
one of my favorite. I don't know why. It just looks like home.
How lovely nestled among the trees. This looks like another home
that would have a big country bed in it. I must be getting really tired
from walking to be thinking about taking a nap! I need to work out
more if I'm going to take walks like this;-)
WOW! How beautiful!
And next door.......Does Mark Twain live here?
This house is almost at the end of our walking tour and is close to town.
The last house on our walking tour is the McGowan House and was
donated to the town of Abbeville. It is beautiful on the inside.
I've been inside this house on a house tour about ten years ago.
I don't know why the columns and porches were ever painted black.
Maybe one day I can post an "after" picture for this home.
We are back at our starting point. There is one more home I want
to show you. It is the most inviting of all!
sit down awhile and rest our dogs! Thank you for joining us on our
walking tour! I loved this afternoon! Hope you enjoyed it, too!
