Southern Splendor Book

By Marc R. Matrana, Robin S. Lattimore, and Michael W. Kitchens

Southern Splendor: Saving Architectural Treasures of the Old South

What better time to dream of your next trip than when forced to remain at home? You will feel as if you have visited each of the houses featured in Southern Splendor by simply paging through its well-illustrated chapters. Some of the homes in this book will seem like old friends (Belmont Mansion), while others will be new discoveries. The authors explore the preservation and restoration of a variety of wonderful houses. You will be inspired to see each one in person after time spent with this informative book!
