The 1859 Stilesboro Academy

My post below did not update in Google Reader, again - I don't know why.  I can add something to the post though - I found out that on October 24, 2012, the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation placed the Academy on its list of "2013 Places in Peril."  Now the members of the Stilesboro Improvement Club should get some needed help to maintain and improve this historic building.

Getting help to maintain is always a good thing. Nice perspective on this fine building.

It is a very styish building.

What a truly beautiful building. Do you know what kind of architecture this is described as?

What a beautiful old building, hopefully they'll be able to restore it.

What a lovely and classic old building. So reminicent of the old South with the raised brick footed foundation and pretty green wooden shutters.

After having lived in Georgia for ten years and traveled all over the state I must say you have me stumped. Where the hell is Stilesboro? A rhetorical question, I'll Google it. It's amazing how many buildings like this there are in Georgia.

Thanks Vagabonde. Some interesting history here - in the post below. Beautiful building and beautiful flowers too. I am surprised cotton is still being grown. Presumably all picked and harvested by machine these days. But where would it be used? Exported to the Far East? Surely not.

Good to hear this, Vagabonde!

I hope they will maintain the buildning. so good to take care of old houses..

I've scrolled down your blog, many lovely photos! and my favorites are the cotton field, how beautiful! and the photos showing the colors of the Autumn! :)

I'm a big fan of historical societies. These are not useless old buildings but part of our history for future generations to reflect upon.

Thank you for your comment. I came up with some of the same stats when I Googled how Candy died and kinda figured the others weren't so great but was a bit surprised at how bad they really are. We have some alarming problems in this country that a certain mentality refuses to acknowledge. Actually, this is one of my hot buttons and you can probably take it from there.

I hope you're feeling better and have your ole energy back. From our house to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

Vagfabonde,
The building is graceful and classic. I do hope it will be well preserved for a log long time.

I am using blogger, and occasionally I have troubles with it. Really troublesome.
Good luck!
