xmas front of plantation house
the Brokaw-McDougal house. An old plantation house that sits within Tallahassee, florida. Now the headquarters of the parks dept.
Interesting how this plantation once had nearly 1000 acres of land, on the outside of the old city limits, a 1880 city with 3,000 people. Today the city has 300,000 people and the property of this plantation is now about ONE acre, and the city utterly surrounds it! the high school is behind it, downtown is only four blocks away!

The front of this house is readied for Christmas, deep in the afternoon shadows.
