Thomas Stone National Historic Site

Last night we stayed with family in beautiful Woodford, Virginia. This morning we hung out for a bit before hitting the road on our way north to Pennsylvania. Our first stop would be across the Potomac River at Thomas Stone National Historic Site. (Stone was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.) Sierra was not in the most cheerful of moods and so we did not go on a ranger guided tour of the home Haberdeventure. Instead we walked a short trail that led from the visitor center,

past the Stone Family Cemetery
Stone Cemetery
Thomas Stone grave 2
and over to the home.
Noelle Sierra Stone House
We walked around the old home
Stone House 2
and over to some of the outbuildings, including a tobacco barn.

Then we returned to the visitor center to get ready for the rest of the day's drive into Delaware.
