It is a lovely old house built in the 1700s.
The history of the families who lived here.
Inside was where the wildlife photography exhibit was taking place. I didn't take any photos of the photos for obvious reasons but they were very beautiful, of wildlife but also flowers, scenery, the kind of photo that I have seen in my blog traveling, all done by members of the Loudon Photography Club. Some fine examples of their work can can be found on Flickr. I did take a few photos around the house.
I fell in love with this old trunk, it triggered a memory of the one my Dad had years ago, full of old newspapers, one a two-paged article on Lawrence of Arabia. I don't know why that one sticks in my mind, perhaps because when I discovered it I had not long before seen the movie with Peter O'Toole in the title role. Dad didn't collect every newspaper that came along, but only ones of important events that went back to WWII. I also can see all the old sheet music in that trunk of my Dad's. He was an excellent piano player and there were many times we would sing together from those old sheets of music. He collected them from his boyhood, probably from the time he first learned how to play the piano. And so I love this old trunk I found in Lanesville House, not only because it was a beautiful piece but because the older I get the more I seem to drift back to my childhood after things trigger my memory, as in this case my Dad's beloved old trunk. When I need them these old memories cover me like a comforting old blanket.
