Lichgate House

Lichgate House:

My family has lived in Tallahassee for 4 generations.  One might think I’ve been there and done that when it comes to knowing the historical, cool places in town- but we all know better than that.  Just last week, after Mom begged asked me to visit her Garden Club, The Violets (and no, they don’t wear hats- I was surprised too), I visited a quaint, shaded property I had never even heard of:  Lichgate.

While in college, I lived just a few miles from this now public park, yet never knew it existed.  I must have jogged past it 100 times.  I must have been too busy doing other things like planning the night’s activities and trying to pop into a business class or two during the week.

I dragged my friend Amy and Ali along with me to Mom’s ‘Garden Club’ last week.  We will be back! If for no other reason than the food was delicious and…. there must have been 10 nice ladies that walked up to us and said, “It’s so nice to have young people here.”   Imagine that- us? Young? Sign me up.

If you are in the area you should check it out. Lichgate is open to the public from sunrise to sunset, so long as there is not a wedding happening (and there are lots of weddings there!)

I think I’ll be adding this location to my list of summer activities for my kids.  Preferably in the morning before it hits 105 degrees.

    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some help
    from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Thank you
