"When horse hair was discovered as insulation in window sashes"

Carter's Grove in Virginia (the first colony in what became the United States) is one of the oldest Georgian plantations in the country with a great house that was once one of the best preserved examples of Georgian plantation architecture. Following the ill-fated ownership by a former tech scion, the house fell into disrepair after its owner fell into bankruptcy. Recently, a new knight in shining armor has purchased the property and set into motion an extensive, and expensive, restoration of this historic home.
