~This old house has so much of my life story in it,~ remarks long-time owner, Anne Gossett-Worthington of her 18th Century Stone Mill home located along the meandering Dead Run Branch in Historic Frankintown, the 21st designated Historic District in Maryland.~When Fred put his mind to something, I knew to get out of the way,~ laughs Anne of her late husband~s decision to take on the suffering Grist Mill they happened on over 50 years ago. ~We both fell in love with it, really,~ she adds, ~the rugged history between the stones and the down-home river-side setting just outside of the City~It found its way into the fabric of each of us,~ she nods.Anne recalls few days without work, especially early on when the renovation was more significant. She tells tales, though, of how the work was mostly as pleasing as a day of rest and how gratifying the restoration really was.~We certainly put a lot into the house,~ remembers Anne, ~we worked quite a bit on the design of the guest-house and garage, too,~ She adds. ~ But it was the gardens, the paths and the walkways and how I wanted it to feel all around that took me over.~ she says, trailing off at the end.~I imagined my very own English garden,~ she perks up with a start, ~and all of a sudden, forty years later, its true!~Your best life begins with a home that inspires you...Live HISTORIC!
