Few places have been as carefully considered as St. Mary's City, Maryland from an historical and archeological perspective. Acres of area have been explored and wherever a structure has been detected, a wooden frame has been placed as a marker.
Overtime these sites have been excavated and researched to reveal their individual stories and once enough information has been attained, they have been rebuilt and transformed into part of the historical city. Unlike Williamsburg, Virginia, the buildings of 17th century St. Mary's City, Maryland were abandoned for the most part after about 100 years in favor of a later, more well considered, capital of Annapolis.
This is the latest addition to the historic sight and it's not only reconstructed, but rebuild with a specific historic story in mind...the visit of the governor. Wonderfully done.
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
