augusta house

Royal, Augusta, and Elizabeth were treated very much as the senior princesses; they were educated together and lived separately from their younger sisters. Mary and Sophia, the middle daughters, formed a tightly knit pair, whilst Amelia, the baby of the family, occupied an especially privileged position, somewhere between pet and mascot, fussed over and admired by all.

Save This Old House!

A stately Queen Anne in a historic downtown district in Augusta, Georgia, needs love and attention.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Augusta Downtown Historic District, the Rice House is an excellent example of the Queen Anne style, with a large dome-capped turret and a second-story porch. Though some details were lost in its conversion to a multifamily home, the house still retains original moldings, mantels, and windows.

Available for $59,000. For more information contact Robyn Anderson at robyn@historicaugusta.org. 

See the March/April 2017 issue of This Old House for more information.

It was common to see Lily with Louis Gryffindor Jacket, a cool Hufflepuff bracelet that she stole from Hugo and Lucy’s Slytherin tie. Dominique was very found of Gryffindor’s colours so she always used her siblings’ clothes. And lots of other crazy combinations happened. Nobody cared, really. And James looked particulary hot in Albus’ green tie…

On this day in history, January 7th, in 1796, Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales was born. She was the only child of the future George IV and his wife, Caroline of Brunswick.

George and Caroline infamously hated one another, and he would later insist they had only ever had sexual intercourse three times; twice on their wedding night and once the night after. Charlotte was born almost exactly 9 months after her parents’ wedding, which had taken place on April 8th of the previous year.

As the only living and legitimate grandchild of George III, Charlotte was second in line to the throne after her father. She was expected to someday become Queen of the United Kingdom, but this never came to pass.

She was married to Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld in 1816, when she was 20 years old. Early in their marriage she suffered a miscarriage, but it was announced she was pregnant again in April of 1817.

After two days of labour, she gave birth to a large stillborn son on November 5th, 1817. Complications from the delivery caused her own death in the early morning hours of the following day.

The entire kingdom went into heavy mourning after her death, she had been greatly beloved and was one of the only popular members of the Royal Family. Her death caused a scramble among the remaining unmarried sons of George III to produce a legitimate child and heir to the throne.

Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent, would be the one to father the eventual heir, the future Queen Victoria. Had Charlotte lived, Victoria would never have existed and England’s “Victorian Era” as we now know it would have been completely different.

Good Bye to Mr. Kim

From the daughter of Mr. Kim, who hosted the Chizine Series readings.


Dear friends,
As many of you already know, my father Hung Kim Le, aka “Mr. Kim” to most people, passed away from a heart attack on Saturday March 31/2012 at the young age of 58.

I apologize that I haven’t responded sooner to you all. It has been an overwhelming time for my family and I, especially with me caring for a fragile newborn as well. Truthfully, I haven’t been in much mood to talk to people yet as I am not sure how to respond or how to act strong. But I do want to say how truly appreciative I am to all our friends who reached out with sincere condolences, messages, FB posts, visits, flowers, food, shared memories etc. It has meant the world to our family, especially my mother. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Lastly, I ask if any of you have photos of my father, we would be eternally grateful if you could send files to us via email to kim.augustahouse@gmail.com

Thank you again everyone.

For those who were asking details about the service, we welcome anyone wanting to pay their respects to attend any of the following services. In lieu of flowers, the family asks guests to make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in his honor.
