Acrylic painting on 16″×12″ stretched canvas
My OOPS group has been at it again. OOPS (Onslow Outdoor Painters Society) elected to spend an afternoon at one of Onslow’s recently restored historical sites, the Palo Alto Plantation .
The Palo Alto will whisk you back in time with its reconstruction. The owners Brian and Stephanie Watson have re-created a bit of history in Onslow County. They have worked diligently restoring the Greek revival charm that the Palo Alto Plantation embodies. They have worked together with the Historical Society of Onslow county to assure that the re-construction process meets all the guidelines to maintain its standing as one of Onslow Counties oldest historic homes. The Palo Alto Plantation sits on three acres of historic Civil War history. Built in the early 1800′s, the Palo Alto has been owned by only 3 families and will maintain the fashionable charm of its time.
