On This Day in 2007 – Montpelier Mansion

The date was May 27, 2007.  While visiting relatives in Virginia Bob and I made a day trip to Laurel MD, where I had lived from May 1991 through April 1997.  I still had friends in the neighborhood, where I used to live.  We made the day trip that day to visit my friends.  We had about an hour to spare before we were expected by my friends, so Bob and I visited nearby Montpelier Mansion.

Montpelier Mansion is one of the finest examples of 18th century Georgian architecture in the state of Maryland.  The original owners of Montpelier Mansion were Major Thomas and Anne Snowden, who welcomed into their home many distinguished guests including George Washington and Abigail Adams.

We walked through a lovely garden.

I took a couple close-up photographs of the flowers in the garden.

So, there you have it — a look back on one of my memories from May 27, 2007.
