The old home place, once a farm, now in the middle of the small town that grew around it. The house was built in 1919 by a timber man, who, from his tree farms, picked the pines to be used in its construction. My grandparents moved there in 1934. My mother lives there today.

Potomac River and Highway 15 bridge from Point of the Rocks, looking southwest. This is just east of Harper's Ferry and along the historic route of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal.
From the porch of King Street Coffee in Leesburg, VA, looking north.
Wedding venue at The Barn at York Hill. The farm is still run by the same family that established it in the mid-eighteenth century. Originally a tobacco farm, it converted to hay production in the early nineteenth century. The barn sketched above was built in 1812 for hay storage. Vertical slits in the stone walls aerated the hay to prevent heat build up and spontaneous combustion. The wedding reception was held inside the barn, and the narrow slits letting in daylight had an almost modern effect.
The farm today is a productive apple and peach orchard and small vineyard.
