  1. I attended the 2nd Annual Eco-Carnival at Seatuck Environmental yesterday (4/29/2011) and pictures I took with my camera phone could not do justice to the architecture of Scully Manor/Estate. Thank you, BlueIris, for sharing your wonderful pics with the world at large through your Flikr account. I am now a fan of yours and look forward to future albums you choose to share. Thank you again.

    I had never heard of Seatuck or of this estate until last week. Judging from the rave reviews and these lovely photographs, I can’t wait to visit! Thanks.

  3. I took the house tour about a year ago. Very interesting.
