Christmas at Seven Gables 2011
Enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas at "Seven Gables" a family farmhouse built in 1909 by our hosts grandfather. The family was involved in a peanut and cotton farming operation for many years on the land surrounding the home. Following the passing of our hosts grandmother in 1970, they began a forty year on-going restoration project on the house. They raised their children, the fifth generation here and now frequently welcome the sixth generation of grandsons for visits.
They have filled the home with many family heirlooms and memorabilia, and always enjoy sharing a little part of local history with guests. Come back in time and enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas at Seven Gables. The owners of Seven Gables are good friends of mine.
When our hostess was ten years old she bought this candle stand table for $10.00. Her interest in antiques began at an early age. The antique Sheffield silver basket was a wedding gift in 1969. Fresh greenery is abundant throughout the entire house accented by candlelight.
Merry Christmas from "Seven Gables".
