Locust Grove

After the Sheep and Wool Festival, we decided to check out Locust Grove, the historic estate of Samuel Morse. I love all of the estates along the Hudson. Each year around this time we go to a different one. The views are always so gorgeous with the fall foliage. This house was not enormous, but the impressive thing about it, is that it has all of the original items from the last family to live in the house, the Youngs. Tons of stuff, including all of the minutae and tchotchkes, which I adore. Of course, no pics are allowed in these places, and the tour was so small, so I couldn’t be sneaky. I managed to risk it and take one pic of this great old dollhouse, with little china dolls. Someday I will wile away the hours on my ultimate dollhouse….it will happen!
