Mansion on Main: Thomas House

I took this picture from the car and it had a lot of poles and wires in it. So I've edited out everything in the sky, but the posts still go across the house.

The house was built on the site of an earlier house about 1889 for Richard S. Thomas, a prominent Smithfield lawyer and historian. It was the dream house of a newlywed couple who were descendants of early local families. The lady of the house, Francis Boykin Jordan, was connected to Smithfield's own Windsor Castle on her mother's side. Windsor Castle was built by Smithfield's founding father.

Richard Thomas was an outspoken attorney. Among other published historical articles, he wrote about activities at the local site that his brother owned, Four Square Plantation..

Smithfield Station: Stay in a Lighthouse

This is a hotel and marina on the Pagan River -vthe hotel has a reproduction of the Hooper Strait Light from St. Michaels which you can spend the night in.

According to their website:
"There are two spectacular and luxurious suites in the lighthouse. One upstairs and one downstairs. The upstairs suite is the "honeymoon" style suite and is done in a romantic nautical style, the downstairs suite is the "executive" suite and decorated in Chesapeake Bay Nautical"
I heard the reservation lady on the phone say that the lighthouse suite is $229/night at this time of year.
