Historic Photos of a Different Kind

For your viewing pleasure, I present you with photographs of the 1960s excavations of the Port Tobacco Courthouse and the St. Charles Hotel. As I was not present, or even alive, when these excavations occurred, my narration will be minimal.

This appears to be the removal of courthouse rubble.

Exposed foundations within the courthouse.

Apparently artifacts of Native American origin were found.

Excavation within the cellar of the St. Charles Hotel. The cellar door of the Chimney House is visible in the background.
