The Little Office at Belle Grove


For at least 20 years I've been coming to Belle Grove in Middletown, but I'd never been inside the little stone house that you see as you come up the lane. On Saturday it was open to the public for the first time as part of the plantation's opening day of the season, so I made it a point to go.

In the 18th century, this building had an office on one side and a store on the other side. Later it saw other uses and eventually became a residence. Over the past two years it underwent remodeling, and the upstairs is now ready as sleeping quarters for guests.
