St Emma Parlor Windows

October 06, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

This window from St Emma's Big House looked out over a tree lined drive drive like you see in the movies like "Gone With The Wind." I wondered who looked out this window, some people had actually scratched messages in the glass of the dated 1859, another 1890. Slave owners, enslaved people, post war Cocke family, priests, nuns, students...all looking through the same glass at the same hills from the same room. What did they think as they looked out onto the peaceful green world below? Imagine.
