GREY TOWERS-GIFFORD PINCHOT HOME
When walking to the house from the parking lot, this is the first building you see, this building houses the rest rooms. From here you can see High Point New Jersey.
Every angle of this wonderful mansion high lights a different aspect of it's beauty. One of the most beautiful parts of the mansion is the wonderful foliage growing on and around the building.
This was the only room of the house I could get a decent picture in. You can only tour the bottom floor, since the upper floors are used as offices and for conferences. Pay attention to all the wild life that has been stuffed and mounted.
In the formal dining room are these two terra cotta camels sitting on an extremely long table. These camels are the oldest items in the house and are more than one thousand years old.
This long garden really isn't as long as it looks. The person who designed this part of the garden uses illusion to make it appear longer than it is. The near end of the pool is about two feet wide while the far end is about six inches wide. The depth of the water changes also, it's shallowist on the near end and deepest at the far end. At the end of the pool you can see the bait box.
This is a fantastic piece of furniture. I have never seen anything like it before. It is actually an outdoors dining table. The edge is abot eighteen inches wide and the middle is water. Food was floated in light weight bowls of wood across the water to guests. There are stories on a turkey dropping to the bottom of the pool. Live fish also swam in the pool.
The letter box was once used to house all of Gifford Pinchot's writings. When his family donated the writing to the national libray it was said that the papers spanned a huge distance when laid out side by side.
This is yet another beautiful view of the mansion.
