The Allure of Old Masonry

  1. Your first paragraph resonated with me for some reason. ;)

    The Zimmerman house you photographed is the John C. Zimmerman house. John owned the hotel for a while. Next door, the other impressive house, is the Charlie Zimmerman house (Charlie was John’s son). John is buried in the Calvary Episcopal Church cemetery (located across the road from the school).

    Croft State Park does indeed have a lot to offer if you like ruins and family cemeteries. I know I’ll be back.

  2. When I first saw the title, I thought this was a post about a Dan Brown book.

    I grew up in Huntington Woods – the SW part of the Camp Croft developed residential zone. Lots of “old masonry” out there – we used them as “forts.” Wish I’d had a camera back then and particularly a digital one. Some fascinating ruins out there. Many are gone now due to development or land clearance. Never did figure out why some foundation structures were designed as they were.
