Six beautiful Morgan cars owners arrived at Monmouth last week for a two night stay with us. The prestigious group from Great Britain had their cars shipped across the Atlantic to arrive in New York in May. The owners had well planned their travels through the Eastern and Southern states . The cars and owners were welcomed at each location with much fanfare and news coverage. The group dining each evening with us at Monmouth, requested to be seated in the Gentlemen's Parlor under the Waterford chandeliers for their five course dinners.

Each of the Morgan cars were custom built for each owner in England and each owner went into the factory to see their cars being hand assembled.

Their final stop on tour was New Orleans where the cars will be shipped home to England arriving within three weeks. The group enjoyed the plantation, dining and their accommodations and presented us with a commemorative plaque of their May- July 2008 tour of the United States.

We were elated to have these lovely guests with us at our Monmouth.
