Tullis-Toledano Manor Oil Painting

Tullis-Toledano Manor......24x20......Oil painting.......$500(sold)
The Tullis-Toledano Manor was bulit in 1856 as a wedding present for the owner's wife. It was damaged by Hurricane Camille. It came under the ownership of the City of Biloxi and was restored to its former grandure. The city rented it out for parties and receptions. My High School class had a family picnic on the grounds there during one of our reunion weekends. It was a beautiful place but during Hurricane Katrina one of the casino barges was lifted up and deposited on top of it, so unfortunately it was demolished.
