  Officer's Home--Fort Hancock, New Jersey

I thought this mantle was a piece worthy of comment. The fine woodwork and style (note the rounded mirror and two pillasters at each end) gave it a commanding presence in the room.

I could imagine the family preparing for their evening meal, stopping for just a moment in front of the dancing fire to warm their hands. How many stockings hung from the mantle and how many winters did the family see here?
