good food + awesome travel & occasional odd bits

Mercer-Williams House: No photos! No recording! No note taking!

Monterey Square is definitely beautiful with no shortage of trees, park benches, and spanish moss. What makes this part of town particularly appealing are the stunning homes lining the square. In every corner and on every side are amazing homes, namely, the Mercer-Williams House.

The outside is pretty much the only part of the home that can be photographed. I’ve toured my share of historic homes and this one by far had the most rules and restrictions. There was a small sunken garden in the courtyard that we would have loved to photograph, but, remember the rules… no photos! The tour itself was heavy on the art and collectibles on the first (and only floor open to the prying eyes of the public) floor of the home. I learned some interesting facts and proceeded to jot down some notes but… no note taking allowed! Even though the tour was restrictive, I still did enjoy seeing the several rooms on the ground floor. Psst! For those of you who read the book or saw the movie, they do let you into the infamous office.

This was just a random shot of a window on a house I am going to move into some day.
