I use the blog format to share digital photographs and scrapbook layouts with my family. My husband, Bob, and I have three sons (two are identical twins), three daughters-in-law, and twin granddaughters. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to South Carolina in December 2005 and it was the best thing we ever did.

The Hay House, Macon, Georgia
Although The Hay House was not built in the antebellum style, it certainly was a mansion and Bob and I toured it. We weren't permitted to take interior pictures, but this home was unbelievable. It would be impossible to explain how ornate and over-the-top everything was, but suffice it to say, it was definitely something to see! The next picture shows me at the front doors - they were huge, as was everything in this home. It included a very ornate and beautiful ballroom, an elevator, and a secret room where the family's valuables were stored, it is said. The secret room was incredible - totally invisible and large - a very neat place!
"Welcome to The Hay House in Macon, Georgia."

In 1866, Henri was forced to sell the plantation and all but their most personal belongings at auction for a mere $32,800.00, thus ending 30 years of Roman joys and sorrows at Oak Alley.
