Grand Island Mansion: A palace in the middle of the Delta

I’d often heard of this beautiful mansion located out in the middle of the Delta somewhere that you could rent out for weddings and such, but I had never stumbled across it in my numerous travels through the Delta.  So one day while tromping around with Barbara Daly (who runs Delta Heartbeat Tours), I had the chance to see this beautiful place.
