    When I went to school at GSW back in the 80s, the Windsor was semi abandoned. There were dead pigeons in some of the rooms upstairs. The theatre club held a “Madrigal dinner in the foyer each year, complete with minstrels and serving wenches. We could only afford the student tickets, so we had to watch from the second floor balcony, eating grapes. Good memories.

    Americus is full of homes built before the Civil War. Sherman did not burn Americus. The church where I grew up is still there and was built in the 1700’s. The pews are put together with wood pegs. First Presbyterian. There are so many other historic homes to take pictures of in Americus.

      Indeed there are; it’s a beautiful town. I hope to find more time for photographing neighborhoods next time I’m there. I do wonder, though, how the church was built in the 1700s, since Americus was settled in the early 1830s.
