Hello neighbor! Lived in Alexandria for about 14 years, and now (begrudgingly) in Springfield for the past 3.

Thinking this might be a good time to revisit Claude Moore farm (as a guest this time). One thing I particularly liked about it was that it showed daily life on a working family farm. Much different from the “plantation experience” one gets when visiting places such as Mt. Vernon, Montpelier, Monticello, Gunston Hall, Berkeley, etc. that are all over VA. Both types of experiences are certainly educational, informative, and valuable in their own right, but there’s fewer opportunities to explore the lives of the non-elites.
