Thanksgiving in the Country House Tour 2011, Sergeantsville, NJ

Last week I showed you some photos of our time at Thanksgiving in the Country, held in Sergeantsville, New Jersey (part of Delaware Township). The house tours were fascinating, and here are some more photos. Unfortunately I could not take pictures inside the houses (these are private properties), but I tried to take as many as I could outside.

We visited a home where George Washington slept (this is not a museum but a home where someone actually lives!), complete with summer kitchen.

We visited the beautiful house of a brilliant illustrator, and also a multimillion dollar mansion set on 26 acres.

We visited a very interesting house where modern meets old. In the living room the homeowners had a very large German clock on the wall from a bell tower, a ottoman covered with material from a circus tent, a set of orange school lockers against one wall with a bowl full of billiard balls on top. Very interesting. Those homeowners have eclectic tastes.

I would be willing to move into any of these homes immediately!

We also just were able to appreciate the beautiful Hunterdon County countryside.
