Exploring the Backyard

I love to explore and when I find a gem in my own backyard I get ecstatic.
This is Sweetwater Mansion. built in 1828 by 1812 war hero. You can visit the sites blog spot to learn more about this amazing place at:
Notice the water fountain and pond. It was said to represent a drop of blood symbolizing royal blood, but when the Civil War broke out it took on the meaning of a teardrop. The fountain cascades into the a pool in the the shape of a tear drop.

While there don't forget to visit the cemetery. It has some very unusual headstones.
