At Stephen Foster Park~ Quilt Show

I have shown pictures of the quilts the last 2 days , today I am showing pictures of the Park where the Quilt Show was held ,They are open year around and have many events planned here as well as a gift shop and camping grounds.

                                  Tower up close
            Southern Belle display inside the tower.
               Tower from the distance _ I had taken more photo's but they did not turn out good


Museum~ walkway from Auditorium to Museum
 Not sure if this is the front entrance or the back, but from the Auditorium we went in this way.
 Inside the museum there were several piano's all very old .

There were several window units showing how things worked long ago.
 This is a very old chair , I failed to look and see the age , they had straps going a cross it to keep people off it and I was afraid to get too close but this wood carving at the top looks just like George Washington!
  A few more quilts

 The other side of the museum - we came out a side entrance, this is what you see as you drive into the park area, at the main entrance gate you have to pay to get into the show, not sure about campers and etc.
This is another side view from the museum of a water fountain, there was no water in it this time. There are many very old Oak trees that are huge! A beautiful place to visit.

                                          Dulcimer Retreat Nov. 8-9 , 2013

                                          Festival Of Lights
over 5million lights strung all through the park and all over the tower as it plays Carols,  there will be bonfires hot choc,.concerts, shopping, marshmellow roasting and more.
