Postcard collection continued.  I collect postcards too, just not on such a big scale as Marie's.  First is a postcard of the 1848 House in Marietta in my collection and next is the same subject in Marie's collection. 

If one ever asks you what mansion in Marietta was owned by two mayors a century apart you can smugly say the 1848 House.  It was first owned Marietta Mayor Bolan Glover , in well, 1848.  Then in late 1900s and early 2000s it was owned by Marietta  Mayor Bill Dunaway, who owned it as a fine dining restaurant.

It had a reputation of being haunted.  In the mid 1920s it was abandoned and my father and some  friends spent the night in it waiting for a ghostly experience.  I don't think they had any kind of ghostly experience.    Bill Dunaway has a few stories or eerie happenings there  that his restaurant staff had.

After it left Bill Dunaway's ownership the rumor was that Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones bought the house.   That didn't pan out.  The last I heard it was going to be a focal point or a clubhouse for a small subdivision.
