For the next few days, I'll be posting photos from the home of President James Garfield. I'll be posting in groups of 4 or 5. The majority of photos are of the interior, but I'll begin with the exterior and our tour with Ranger Dan. These are from the rear of the home. It is located off, and close to, Route 6 and photos of the front are not quite as easy to get. The camera for all the photos is the A7RII. Exterior photos were taken with the 24-105/4 and the interior shots were taken with the Voigtlander 10/5.6

More of the exterior. The house is constructed in 2 phases.... pre and post-assassination. The original house (front) was quite modest. Garfield had been a University President with 3 children. It was a relatively modest home.

The President, his wife, 3 children, Garfield's mother, and his father-in-law, lived in the house.

Just curious, but did you just snap these as you went through a standard tour? Did they wait and you could position yourself as needed? Nice series in any case.

It certainly is a grand old house, Ted. Thanks for sharing the tour with us. I'm kind of a closet history buff and like seeing how people lived back in the day.
I think you'd really get a kick out of going on a tour of San Simeon, better known as Hearst's Castle.

A comment on your lens choice - I found the inside shots a little off-putting because of the distortion but realize that it is a necessary evil if you're going to show as much of the rooms as you did. Good job, I'll have to work on my 'perspective' of viewing them.
