    I’m sure it isn’t intentional, but I would consider updating your post to, at the very least, acknowledge that this property is a product of the trans-atlantic slave trade. Generations of slaves suffered at the hands of the family that built it and lived here. There is an unsavory history behind all the grandeur that should not be ignored. Thanks, Tom

      Hi Tom, thank you for reaching out. You’re absolutely right and I’ve amended the post to reflect that. It’s important to always grow and learn more about the world around us — and to learn from the past.
