Paula invites us to take a look at the past. It may be a past long forgotten or a past very much present and incorporated into today’s existence.
I took a walk this morning around a local historic site near my home that I have written about previously- one of the buildings on the site was used by General George Washington, which I thought appropriate as here in the United States we celebrate President’s Day tomorrow. This building was built in 1752 and is where George Washington set up headquarters for a time. It has sat on this land since that time.
The house in the foreground is an example of a sandstone cottage and was built in 1678 and moved to this location a few years ago.
This is another sandstone center-hall 4 room house with a full cellar and full garret/attic capped with a gambrel roof, built in 1774. It was also moved to this location.
Traces of the past that remain in the present, and as I wandered the grounds today I came upon this man, very much in the present, but dressed for an Historical Event taking place later in the day.
