200 words huh?<quoted text> I want a 200 word essay:
Why Lanier Mansion? As opposed to going fishing, a zoo-park, or a picnic?
I've been known to do that in one sentence.
I guess the easiest answer is "it was next on the list".
That and the fact that I've really been wanting to see it. It's a beautiful old mansion.
When I was a kid my mom used to drag us on these tours of old homes and I hated it. Maybe it's a sign that I'm getting old, but I really enjoy that kind of thing these days.
We decided to skip the boat and ended up at a cafe downtown.
It was a good day.
Next on the list is a part of town known as Georgetown. Lots of shops and a couple of museums.
It's a community that was founded by slaves that were brought north by the Underground railroad. The city has grown up around it, but Georgetown has been preserved.
