John D. Rockefeller's Bassett Hall, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia


This is the lane leading to the front door of Bassett Hall, John D. Rockefeller's home in Williamsburg.  Rockefeller was amazingly wealthy and poured millions of dollars into the restoration of Virginia's colonial capitol, now known as "Colonial Williamsburg."  When we last toured the facility we learned that at the time, this was the only home the Rockefeller's owned with fewer than 100 rooms.

Click here to see the floor plan and interior photos. Unlike the other structures in Colonial Williamsburg which are restored to colonial times, this is decorated as it was in the 1930's and 1940's when Abby and John Rockefeller were in residence.

It was interesting seeing pictures from some of the rooms, and surely there must be several of rooms to use, or els the staf could'nt run the house properly!
If those walls could talk, wow!!

It is a lovely home, even if it does not have 100 rooms!

I’m so excited because my broken marriage has been restored & my husband is back after he left me and our 2 kids for another woman. After 8 years of marriage, me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to California to be with another woman. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, I was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that DR.Osasu can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a (Love spell) for me. 28 hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day,our Marriage was now stronger than how it were before,All thanks to DR.Osasu . he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that DR.Osasu real and powerful spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your Ex back or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact this powerful spell caster now.

Es ist so schön dass die Liebe gesiegt hat. Fehler verzeihen und neu anfangen. Aber bitte beide. Jeder macht im Leben viele Fehler. bewusst oder auch unbewusst. Der Zauber liegt tief im Glauben an das Gute in dir, den Menschen und der Schöpfung. Sie gibt uns die Kraft im Leben. Liebe ist Wärme , Geborgenheit und nach Hause kommen! In Liebe, #MediumIreneBender.
