We'll All Have Tea



RittenhouseTown, Philadelphia, PA

I met the nicest living history guides here.
While we didn't have tea,
they were so friendly that it almost felt like we did.

Just A Rainy Day


Cuttalossa Farm
New Hope, PA

The only thing I don't like about a rainy day
is getting raindrops on the lens.
I have a lot of pictures with raindrop ghosts now.
Maybe I could sell them to ghost hunters. ;)

The Mansion that Never Was



Imagine at age 12
becoming the richest girl in America.



Image at age 14
having the guts to sue your mother.



Imagine at age 15
controlling an estate of
27 acres
45 Buildings
9 lakes
18 miles of roads
and
1.5 miles of stone walls.



Imagine being Doris Duke.
Heiress, Horticulturist, Philanthropist, Art Collector.



But something was missing:  A mansion.
The foundation lies abandoned.
The upper floors never built.


The Crumbling Foundation  
of the Mansion that Never Was 

Doris' father, James Buchanan Duke  
of Duke University fame,
quit the project,
fired the workers,
and put his focus in Europe
when the US government dissolved his company
due to it being considered a monopoly.



But Doris loved the property
and because of her
 it is left for us to enjoy today.

You can visit Duke Farms 
in Hillsborough, NJ
free of charge
thanks to the Doris Duke Foundation.
It is worth the visit.

All photos taken at Duke Farms.
