Here is what Fort Sumter looked like when it was build. Three stories high.
Here is what is left of Fort Sumter, one story of wall on the outside and not much on the inside.
There is a lot of money in this city. They used a lot of rot iron on homes as well. The homes and buildings have special pieces put into them for earth quakes as they experienced a 7.7 earthquake which destroyed a lot of the city. Many homes here are protected by the historical society so owners have to keep them looking a certain way. We were told taxes on these houses were 5% of what they are worth!
Blessing of the Day: Spending time with Tim and learning so much about this great city.
Thanks for stopping by.
