Princess Anne Grange 280, and possibly some members of other Granges, standing on the steps of the Somerset County Courthouse circa 1900-1910. This photo was submitted by Chuck (Freese) Rhodes, who says, "I have no names to go along with it at this point, except I know there are Rhodes and Widdowsons standing there."
