Surely, a celebration that all near and far will be in attendance for!
This is a very exciting event – I read about the location online and the home/property is rich in history and looks absolutely beautiful, an excellent setting. And the combination of events planned for the Ball, one can really settle into the historic atmosphere and drift, if only for an evening, to live a bit back in history. The live colonial music sounds fun.

What was the inspiration for this event? Always interesting to learn the stories about how people enjoy connecting with history.
Thanks for posting!
