  1. Mike, I’m curious if these old structures are protected in a Williamsburg, VA or Appomatox, VA type place to visit or are they subject to vandalism and age. This is a wonderful structure!!

    • They are in an old mining town called Saint Elmo. There is still a general store there and many tourists 4 wheel up to the town. I believe there are still a few people living up there, but I do not know if any of the buildings have taken on historical protected status. It is googelable, but I have not googled it. And good afternoon Laurie.

      • It took me a while to realize that a lot of images could be enlarged. I now try to remember to add a line to my posts telling folk to ‘click on an image for a higher quality enlargement’. Whether they do that or not I have no idea, but I am sure the smaller images that are ‘crunched’ to fit the blog’s width lose quality in the process.
