I think everyone has at least one favorite historic or modern residence. Post some pics and tell us where it is. Monticello. Just beyond words. Shirley Plantation is one of the oldest plantations in the country. It's in VA. George Eastman House, the Rochester residence of Kodak founder George Eastman. The Charles Schwab Mansion, no longer in existence. Kykuit, the Westchester County residence of the Rockefellers. Forbes magazine claimed Kykuit contains the finest gardens in America.
