Before and After, Part 3

Yesterday's photographs highlighted two of Port Tobacco's three remaining 18th century buildings. Today's will highlight the third, the Burch House. For comparison I give you three pictures. The first is labeled as a 1945 photo and shows the Burch House in good condition. The second photo is the Burch House in the 1970s, in need of some work. The third photo is the Burch House this year before the most recent restoration efforts.

Some things to notice:
* The rear of the house is an addition (including the back two windows). This is easiest to notice in the middle photo.
* There is little vegetation around the house in the first photo.
* The condition of the house in the second photo shows how close Port Tobacco was to losing this structure.
