Is that wonderful place empty?

Wow! Is this house close to you?? What a dream to have an old house like that and the money to fix it up and keep it going!

Yes, it's empty and very close to us. It's an old Fort built during the Civil War and used through World War II, now long closed and part of the National Park System. It's Very disappointing how this particular National Park Fort has been left to deteriorate. I'm afraid by the time the new "plan" is instituted in 2012, there won't be much left to restore. Heartbreaking when you love a place as much as I love this one (where the Fort is located in general). This was taken Christmas Eve, late in the afternoon. I could almost hear the ghosts of Christmases long past getting ready for the holiday here. We believe this was a hotel of sorts for family visiting.
