Historic Leesburg House

I visited Leesburg, Virginia, an old town northwest of the DC area in the foothills of the Shenandoah. It's about 30 miles from where I live. Somehow even after living in this region for more than 20 years I had never stopped there and explored the place. It is touristy and full of shops and restaurants. I sat on a sidewalk bench in very nice weather and drew this image of a historic building, the "Lynch-Tebbs" house, on one of the main streets. When I showed it to a waiter in a restaurant there, he said that the house was haunted! No ghosts in this drawing though.
