Good Fences - Bedford County Courthouse

click on photos to enlarge
"Built in 1930, this Classical Revival building features an Ionic-order porch, Corinthian columns and Flemish-bond brickwork. The massive triangular pediment has a unique design incorporating symbols of the local crops of corn and tobacco and the official crest of the fourth Duke of Bedford, John Russell. Encircling the grounds like silent sentinels stand monuments to veterans of the American Revolution, Civil War and World War II. Main Street, Bedford. Noteworthy is the D-Day monument commemorating Bedford’s considerable losses on June 6, 1946." ...taken from Visit Bedford
These last 2 are the views from behind the courthouse where we sat for lunch. You can see the artists that I showed you on Tuesday in this last photo, and some fences! Linking with TexWis today Good Fences

  5. They just don't build them that way any more. The oldest buildings in our half of the city are little more than ten years old.
