The Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center with Jessica

Today Jessica and I went to the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center to walk around and take pictures. I've been there a couple of times before, but this was the first time I've been there when the visitor's center was open (it was closed for a few months because of the pandemic):

We were fortunate enough to be allowed inside the center's Chesser-Williams House, an 1850's house that was donated to Gwinnett County Parks a few years ago, moved to the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center, and restored:

The house is beautifully adorned with folk art painting, both the front porch and inside in one of the rooms (including on the ceiling!):

(That's the ceiling!)

The rest of the house isn't so lavishly painted, but is charmingly furnished and decorated:

(The eggs and apples above, and the food on the table below, are all plastic.)

Unfortunately, the upstairs isn't restored yet so we couldn't go up there, but we could look up the stairs:

Before we left the center, Jessica sat down to take a picture of the sky (and to rest, I think):
