We were lucky enough to visit this house while the pink roses were in bloom and were able to talk to the current owner. An interesting fact is that each side of the house was built in a different architectural style in order to demonstrate the versatility of the marble.

Come to the church by the Wildwood
Oh, come to the church in the vale
No spot is so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the vale
Lyrics by Dr. William S. Pitts, 1857
This little country church reminded me of this hymn from my childhood.
