Fences - A Trip Back in Time

For today's fences, I am taking you to Montpelier, home of James Madison, "Father of the Constitution".  It was a wonderful trip and offered so many fences!

Great pics Linda...I would love to visit this place. BTW I have no clue why that error message is showing up. I found out about it from several folks who tried to link up for FF. As far as I know...I have no viruses and my security program scans on a regular basis.

Oh, can you imagine living there about 250 years ago? Beautiful.

Wonderful variety of old fencing and such great vistas. Haven't visited here but have toured Mt. Vernon. Some fences were for utility, like your favorite, and some for beauty and to complement the home.

Beautiful viuews of the house and grounds. I haven't been to Montpelier, and that's a shame. I should have! Maybe we will get back one day. The variety of fences were great for this post!
