Historic Haile Homestead- Talking Walls

My daughter and I visited the Haile Homestead on Sunday, we had a great time.
The Haile Homestead was once the home of Thomas and Serena Hale who came to the Gainesville, Florida area in 1854 and established a large plantation called Kanapaha. The house is 6,200 square feet, plenty of house for their 15 children!
The Haile’s, even their guests, had a habit of writing on their walls; the oldest date was in 1859. There are 12,500 words all together. To see a video of the Haile Homestead see Haile Homestead Video Tour
