White County folks are in love with the mansion in Judsonia that survived the 1952 tornado that did such massive damage and caused so many deaths. Several blogs have been done with the latest one being OMG! It's for sale!
We got to tour the mansion because it was on the tour of homes. Here's a view of it from the side as we walked up to it.
We got to see the size of the columns at the front.
We could see the front from down under.
And we could view from the top porch looking down.
And then we could go see what was in the once wonderful yard. How about this huge fireplace. Do you think it was an outdoor kitchen, an early version of what folks are doing now with those $20,000 outdoor kitchens.
And this next picture takes you back SO far.....to carriage houses! At least that is what I'm calling this building.
And while we are dreaming of old by-gone days, imagine this little cement pond in the back yard. It probably was surrounded by a lovely garden with flowering plants and the concrete bench was for sitting and reading and watching the goldfish.
