Wow! 92° yesterday. Now, that had to break some record around here for an April day. It got me dreaming about summer again and some of my favorite places. Here's one. Built in 1755, the George and Mary Tate House sits atop the banks of the Fore River in the beautiful Stroudwater Village area of Greater Portland. This is the only Pre-Revolutionary War home, open to the public, that survived all the devastating fires in the city's history. If you're a history buff, or just enjoy old houses and beautiful summer gardens along a riverbank, you might want to put this on your 'to do list' this summer.
