Circular Drive Remnants
The cherry tree is on top of a "mound." Remnants of a circular carriage drive going around the mound can be seen. This is the original 19th century Ficklen-period drive that terminated in this area because the house's east side served as the "formal front" entrance. The stone bench on the north end of the house may have been used as a carriage 'step down.' From there, guests would have proceeded down the boxwood lined "Long Walk."
