From Paula Benton …


“So many special times are linked with Silvermont!  Of course, our children played there often when they were younger.  Now grandchildren play tennis there.

But it goes even further.  I remember wonderful fund-raisers for various causes that were held on the beautiful porch.  Elegant suppers prepared by loving hands and served beautifully.

When I was involved with Brevard Little Theater, we stored costumes on the third floor and  spent lots of time sorting and selecting and sweated buckets in the summer.  At that time, much of the original furniture was still in the house and it was like a time machine.  And now the beautiful house museum offers a glimpse of the early days of the mansion and its’ family.  Silvermont is a happy place and the walls echo with laughter and memories for our family.”
