Wednesday's Wanderings --- Locations from Surrender the Wind
This old stone house is located in Virginia where Seth grew up. It is the perfect image of the house his father would have built out of mountain stone along the Potomac River. In the story, you will find this homestead settled in fields of wheat, nestled in grazing land for horses, banked by great trees. When Seth returns from the Revolution, imagine how he must have found it after the British ransacked it. Fortunately it was not burned to the ground like other homes.
