Enjoyed the tour which the home owner, Lisa, gave to us. Beautiful setting for a wedding or small party. Interesting that one of our favorite musicians, James Taylor, is a descendant of Isaac Taylor. Visit Lisa's art museum w/ her and area artists works.

This is a lovely oasis in the middle of town. With the fountains and music playing it was a nice break from walking and shopping. It would be a wonderful venue for an event.

The Issac Taylor Garden is a nice spot to stop and take a break from everything for a little bit. I got to visit the area during the Art Walk so there are art galleries close by and live music. It was an enjoyable experience.
