The Return of Somerville Manor?

I got some great news from my brother. He's squire to a knight whose family used to own Somerville Manor, a medieval living history site. It was available for parties, weddings and such, but it got shut down because authentic medieval buildings don't meet modern building codes. But now they're thinking about reopening it in Utah! This is great news!

Imagine a medieval bed-and-breakfast. Or a castle where you could have weddings. Or an educational day trip for your kids!

If this sounds even remotely interesting to you, and you are on Facebook (or you want to be on Facebook), please go and "friend" William FitzArthur. Find him using the email address . If he can get 10,000 Facebook friends, he can show the Small Business Administration that there is enough interest in Somerville Manor to justify opening it up.
