NEW THIS YEARA completed a new room which you will enter from the ballroom called the "Memorial Hall." It contains all of our full-sized historically accurate replicas of RMS Titanic sculptures, and will also be the final resting place for the St. Georges in the future. This neoclassical room rises to a grand height of 20 feet, and like many rooms in the home, it is imbued with much personal meaning.
Promenade AmoureauxView it on your way to exiting out through the new "Promenade Amoureaux" (Romantic Walk). Our landscaper says gardening "is the slowest of the arts," so don't expect to see it finished this season! Still, you can enjoy a stroll past the "Musicians Terrace" and down the winding walkway under centuries-old oak trees before departing our magical hilltop.
