When you turn right at the intersection above, you’re headed towards the Elevators…..More Doors, Right? And you are looking towards the main entrance door from the lobby at the end of this hall.

We toured the New Courthouse soon after it opening in 2016.  Of course the Thursday Doors gives me an opportunity to share now with my new Blogger Friends.

The Court of Appeals is located in the First Floor Lobby and the first Doors you see upon entry.

Our Doors Open Denver Tour was led by then Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, Nancy Rice, who was involved in the design of the Building.  She was a Great Tour Guide because she loved the building!

From An Old Slave Market

This post is inspired by a recent Atlas Obscura article about the Documentation and Preservation of Plantation Slave Cabins.  At the Underground Railroad Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio (My Hometown).  It is from a Slave Market in Kentucky.  After the Civil War, with the end of Slavery, the building had been used to cure tobacco.  It was so well constructed, that when the farmer wanted to expand his ‘barn’, he built the new barn around it rather than trying to tear it down.

When the Museum was under development, the story of the Slave Market Building came to their attention.  The Current Farmer wanted a new barn, but also knew the probable history of the strange building inside the old barn.  Somehow the Farmer and Museum made contact.  The Museum torn down the old barn, removed the historic Market Building, and built the Farmer a new barn. Later, the State of Kentucky was upset to lose this historic structure.  But it is well preserved now in the Museum Lobby.

Another Place of Interest is the Hermitage Plantation, home of President Andrew Jackson.  This is one of the few plantations where Slave Cabins were openly Preserved and Acknowledged.

Since I found this article at the end of Black History Month,  I am posting it in Honor of my Father’s Birthday Today.  And I think this counts as a #WednesdayWindows posting too.

Above was my Sign offering for the March 2020 Frugal Film Project.  It just didn’t move me.  So I marked it as one of the ‘rejected’ images:
