House Tour: VT's The Grove

When I was looking through my pictures on my computer, I found the pictures from when Janice and I toured the Grove on employee appreciation day. The Grove is the official residence of Virginia Tech's president. It was built in 1902. It has 3 floors and 15,147 square feet. Here's a few pictures from our tour.

The wallpaper is hand painted. Love the light fixture.

We had a great time on the tour. I don't know if we'll ever be back as invited guests or not!
