Naumkeag

After about ten visits to the Lenox, Ma., area in recent years--for Tanglewood, for theater, for museums, or just to get away (note, Hampton Terrace place to stay)--we finally stopped by the Naumkeag estate, on the way home, no less, this past Friday.  I don't think we had even heard about it until last month.  Anyway:  ended up staying 2 1/2 hours and getting full tour of house.   Wealthy family, obviously, but Mabel Choate was fascinating woman, and early advocate and funder of women's education.  A few of my photos below, including BB in wonderful Chinese temple site.
