With the sad news that Southgate House is closing at the end of December, I wanted to begin to euologize the historic place the best way I know how, with memories. Below are my absolute favorite videos on YouTube from Southgate House, one or two are ours, most of them are yours, enjoy.
After going through the choices, there are simply way too many to post, but I hope you dig these. Feel free to link to your favorites in the comments.
