Lovely Saturday afternoon

Spent a lovely though muggy Saturday afternoon on a porch promenade in Freeport, PA with Janie. The were 14 homes on the tour which were just porches and gardens and refreshments.
Would never have known this house was even in Freeport, much less how nice its yard was and how soothing were the neighbors' back yard/gardens.
One of the gardens on the tour was the home first belonging to the Harbison family, an intriguing family of PA/US history.
This event kicked off the week of celebrating Freeport's 175th anniversary. It began as Toddtown, named after the Todd family, but became Freeport as the Todd family permitted vessels to launch and dock without a charge, thus being a free port.
