I had a recent opportunity to tour around the Silas Burke House on ‘Top O’ the Hill’ in Burke Va. The house is owned by my father’s friend Susie Fowler and her husband. Susie grew up in this house with a large family and has many great stories to share. The house is relatively unchanged from her childhood and included a working Edison Phonograph from the early 1900’s. For reasons I can’t explain I walked away with out getting a shot of that wonderful piece of machinery.
