Thanks Bridget! This part of American history is usually left out of our textbooks, it is rather sad. -- Tim

Great shot of it. There have been several films on this topic and the novel "Snow on Cedars" which covered this as well. I did think they would have been demolished by now. Viv

Thanks Steve & Viv! I'll have to check out that novel when I have more time for reading. There were originally over 100 structures at this location, these two and one behind them are the only ones which remain. -- Tim
