Half a mile beyond locked gates in Halifax County sits what may be one of the crown jewels of the South. Until last month, only a select group was allowed inside. But now, as Shannon Young tells us in this week's Time Off, the doors of Berry Hill will swing open for you, too.

((With its impressive mansion, wide expanse of land and air of timelessness, Berry Hill could be the quintessential Southern plantation. But the history on these 700-sweeping acres harkens back further, to the Revolutionary War.
[SOT 1:26:33-1:26:47]
[IN Q=Part of its importance...]

((GREG POIRIER/BERRY HILL: PART OF ITS IMPORTANCE AS A LANDMARK IS THE FACT THAT IT WAS THE HOMEPLACE OF GENERAL EDWARD CARRINGTON WHO, DURING THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN THE DEFEAT OF CORNWALLIS AND DRIVING HIM TO YORKTOWN.))
[RUNS=: 14]
[OUT Q=driving him to Yorktown.]

However, it wasn't until the 1840's when James Cole Bruce and his wife Eliza bought the land that the stately manse appeared. The couple had their heart set on building a home for the ages.
[SOT 1:27:24-1:27:33]

((GREG POIRIER: AND, TO THIS DAY, THOSE THAT CLASSIFY GREEK REVIVAL ARCHITECTURE IN AMERICA WOULD PUT THIS PROBABLY IN THE COMPANY OF LESS THAN A HANDFUL OF THIS MAGNITUDE.))
[RUNS= :09]
[OUT Q=less than a handful of this magnitude.]

The Bruce family left the property one hundred years later and the home sat unoccupied for almost half that time until corporate America came calling. Insurance company AXA chose to invest in Berry Hill as a training center and, along with the Virginia Board of Historic Resources, invested millions to build a nearby hotel and restore the home to its original grandeur.
[SOT 2:19:55-2:20:12]
[IN Q=One of the many things preserved...]

((GREG POIRIER: ONE OF THE MANY THINGS PRESERVED HERE IS THE HISTORIC FLOORCLOTH. IT'S INTACT UNDERNEATH ALL THE WAY ACROSS. THIS IS MADE BY THE SAME MILL IN ENGLAND THAT MADE THE ORIGINAL OVER 160-YEARS AGO.))
[RUNS= :17]
[OUT Q=made the original over 160-years ago.]

The two bedrooms in the mansion and more than 80 in the hotel are luxurious. All are graced by canopied beds, rich colors and will soon sport televisions. Those in the know say Berry Hill also offers a glimpse into the paranormal. Longtime caretaker Cecil Rogers is perhaps best known for his poem "The Ghosts of Berry Hill."
[SOT 1:33:35-1:33:46]
[IN Q=His storytelling would indicate...]

((GREG POIRIER: HIS STORYTELLING WOULD INDICATE THEY'RE ALL FRIENDLY, ALL HAVE INTERESTING HISTORIES AND ALL WANT TO BE RECOGNIZED AS BEING PART OF THE FACILITIES.))
[RUNS= :11]
[OUT Q=as being part of the facilities.]

Now, you too, can walk these grounds. One month ago, Berry Hill opened to the public as a destination for individual leisure travelers. Breakfast is included in the cost of a night's stay but you may also want to indulge when the restaurant opens for dinner Friday and Saturday evenings. Afterwards, take a dip in the indoor pool or traverse the grounds on a mountain bike and see for yourself what Berry Hill has to offer.
[SOT 1:30:11-1:30:26]
[IN Q=We in Virginia particularly are proud...]

((GREG POIRIER: WE IN VIRGINIA PARTICULARLY ARE PROUD OF OUR HISTORIC HERITAGE IN PROPERTIES LIKE THIS THAT BRING BACK ALL THE WORLD CHARMS AND THINGS WE HOLD NEAR AND DEAR. IT'S REALLY EXCITING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A PRODUCT LIKE THIS AND BE ABLE TO INVITE THE PUBLIC TO COME ENJOY IT.))

AND IT'S NO LONGER "ONE PRICE FITS ALL" WHEN IT COMES TO HIGH-SPEED INTERNET SERVICE.
JODY DAVIS HAS THOSE STORIES AND MORE IN THIS WEEK'S TECHNOTAINMENT REPORT.

IF YOU WANT BROADBAND, COMPANIES TRADITIONALLY CHARGE YOU A SINGLE FEE. BUT THAT'S CHANGING.
MORE BROADBAND PROVIDERS ARE CHANGING TO MULTIPLE RATE PLANS... DEPENDING ON HOW OFTEN, OR SELDOM, YOU'RE ONLINE. SOME ALSO OFFER MORE THAN ONE DATA SPEED, AND TAILOR THEIR PRICES ACCORDINGLY.

MORE SUPER AUDIO CD'S ARE MAKING THEIR WAY TO MARKET, SLOWLY BUT SURELY. SOME OF THE LATEST...
(NATS- "Help me baby, I ain't no stranger.")

22 REMASTERED ALBUMS BY THOSE GRANDPAS OF ROCK... THE ROLLING STONES.
THE DISCS ARE DOUBLE-SIDED, SO THEY'LL PLAY IN REGULAR C-D PLAYERS AS WELL AS S-A-C-D DECKS. U-S-A TODAY REPORTS EVEN THE STANDARD C-D SIDE SOUNDS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL COMPACT DISCS.

AND, IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T HEARD... PLAYSTATION 2 IS OFFICIALLY ONLINE.
SONY HAS STARTED SELLING THE 40-DOLLAR NETWORK ADAPTERS THAT ALLOW PS-2 PLAYERS TO BATTLE OTHERS OVER THE INTERNET.
ONLY 4 GAMES ARE ONLINE-READY RIGHT NOW... BUT MORE ARE ON THE WAY. MEANTIME, MICROSOFT PLANS TO TAKE XBOX ONLINE IN NOVEMBER... STILL NO FIRM WORD ON NINTENDO'S PLANS FOR GAMECUBE.
AND THAT'S THE WEEK IN TECHNOTAINMENT. I'M JODY DAVIS REPORTING.))
