From the Beaty historic district here in Athens Alabama. More to come later. These two were built around 1826.

All of these were taken with the K10D and the 18-55mm Kit lens.

old plantation homes still in existance there. I

not as many as you think jim. they are scattered across the south tho. sherman couldn't get them all altho he certainly tried. a lot of the old mansions have vast gardens surrounding them. i use to love going to see the houses but more the areas surrounding them. dawg, thanks for the memories. (hmm, song in there somewhere)

Ok, Robar, tnx for the comment. I was stationed at Agusta for awhile many

years ago and I remember some of the fine old houses there. Anyway, I

enjoy taking photos of old houses, barns and court houses. Covered bridges too.

We have some in our area...... Jim

Actually there are 30 or so inside the city limits of Athens and many many more in Limestone county. The union army did rape and pillage in this small town but didn't destroy the houses. This area of North Alabama and Southern Tennessee was spared a lot of the scorched earth policy as the union didn't think it was industrial enough or heavily populated enough to be of much use capturing it. You can go here to see some Black and white photos of some of the houses taken back in the 1920's to 1930's.

Jim be careful. around here shooting old houses or old barns can get you shot...The people that make and sell Crystal Meth drugs use them sometimes to make their poison and are very paranoid about folks shooting pictures of the place their lab is located...Just be careful!
