Few places exist today where
your thoughts might take you on a leisurely stroll back in
time, and yet when you open your eyes the past remains.
Imagine a sultry summer evening when you happen by a stately
antebellum mansion, its long veranda, nestled in the shade
of a towering magnolia tree, beckons you into its cool

stories the walls around you hold, history's drama suddenly
unfolds in vivid detail before you.
You hear the lonesome sound of a train
whistle in the distance, and the jingle of booted spurs, as
a group of blue-clad soldiers hurry away into the night on
some secret mission. You dare not speak for fear of waking
up the hands of time, for you have found LaGrange,
Tennessee, where time has seemingly stood still...
