Waste Not, Want Not

‘”We’ve restored this building to how it looked over fifty years ago.’
‘No, surely not, no! No one was alive then!'”
– Eddie Izzard

Our county is old, predating the country old (wait until I show you our “main street” with the old courthouse that Patrick Henry worked at). Which means that’s it’s a fantastic mix of layers of history just piled haphazardly on top of one another and land, buildings, and items are constantly being re-purposed. Case in point:
