Norman Rockwell, FDR, Lincoln and the Cider House Rules


Wonder what all of the above could have in common? They were all part of a wonderful fall weekend we just had! We visited The Norman Rockwell Museum where I learned about a connection between Rockwell and FDR. We saw Chesterwood, the country home of Daniel Chester French, sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial. And, we went to Ventfort, built by Sarah Morgan, sister of J.P. Morgan - where the exterior scenes for the movie The Cider House Rules were filmed.

Thanks for taking me along on a mini-vacation! I've always wanted to visit Stockbridge and The Berkshires in autumn. Maybe some day! Beautiful photos!
