Jemison Mansion 2

This is a closer shot of the Jemison Van De Graff Mansion in Tuscaloosa. Here's the view from across the street. Last Sunday was Christmas Open House. Notice the grates under the porch. The family moved their bedrooms to the basement during the summer. These grates were part of the "air conditioning." They also had a "refrigerator" - a deep dry well in the basement to keep food cool.
