Comments

"St. Georges.-Dr. Joseph Wilson Anderson's old place, with its quiet and rustic look is a pleasant contrast to the modern life in the suburb of Ardmore. Koletaria, Irish yew trees, magnolias, a pecan-nut tree, a very large persimmon tree, with English canoe-birch trees brighten the lawn... St. Georges entrance gate, with its solid stone pillars, meets the pedestrian just after leaving the station. A sloping walk, bordered by an orchard, runs to the mansion. "
