“During the Second World War, Mr. White felt it was his patriotic duty to entertain servicemen with extremely lavish parties on his estate. Debutantes were invited to these well-chaperoned events to engage in tennis, dancing, singing and even roller skating through the halls and rooms of the mansion.” ~ Taken from http://www.woodlandsmansion.com/about
First I saw the image. Then I read the quote above on Woodlands about page. I love this place!
Ariel and I are less than a year from living in North Carolina and we can’t wait to start interacting with venues like the Woodlands Mansion. Few places in America can claim heritage like that.
I presume that the roller skating is no longer permitted…but the venue is still a place that Ariel and I hope to photograph in the near future.
