Vermont Mansion Visit #AtoZChallenge#SkywatchFriday

For today's Skywatch Friday (a day early) and "W" day in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, here are pictures of the sky taken at the Park-McCullough Historic Governors Mansion in North Bennington, Vermont.  This Victorian mansion is a 35 room with landscaped grounds gem.  Here is more information on the property, if you are interested.

Yes, I know it's Thursday.  I hope you don't mind this being a day early.

We finally got to see this mansion on our last Visit to Vermont in September of 2023.  We always seemed to miss this property being open. But this time, it was open.  It was worth the wait.

A Vista.

The outside.
Let's get closer.
How about some outside pictures first?  Here's some Joe Pye weed in bloom.


Some of their formal garden.

More garden.

I'm sure you want to see the inside, too.  Here's a couple of pictures.

I hope you enjoyed this Visit.

  12. A terrific choice for 'V'. I'm glad that it was finally open for you to see and to give the rest of us a glimpse.

  13. Amazing photos. What a place! The house reminds me of the Seward House Museum in Auburn, N.Y., where Lincoln's Sec. of State William Seward lived, although the Vermont grounds are more extensive.
