  • History before roads , electricity, air conditioning, Internet sales. Wealth cannot buy peace that passes understanding. Proven time and again.
  • We visited Lanier Mansion on May 26, 2019. The grounds are beautiful! Our guide pointed out a large leaf magnolia tree. The leaves and blossoms were enormous! This variety doesn’t have waxy leaves as is more common in the south. Blossoms were larger than dinner plates. The home is magnificently preserved with attention to the original architectural details. The period furnishings were beautiful. Special mention goes to our guide, Michael. He was very knowledgeable and hospitable. We weren’t rushed and the tour lasted about 45 minutes.
