Homewood House took on a presidential aura last month
as a History Channel film crew used the 203-year-old
Federal era building to pose as an 1860s version of the
White House. On June 7, the crew shot scenes for the cable
network's upcoming documentary, directed by Vikram Jayanti,
that deals with Abraham Lincoln's bouts with depression and
his "visions," including a dream he had that predicted his
death 10 days before his assassination. Homewood House is
featured in a Lincoln dream sequence.
The documentary, whose working title is 'Lincoln's
Dark Side,' is slated to air on the History Channel in fall
GO TO JUNE 21, 2004
