Autumn 2013- Fall Color on Government Island

Several times a year I try to get out to Government Island in Stafford, VA, to get some seasonal shots.  These were taken November 2, 2013.

Stafford County, Virginia Courthouse

The news here recently had a story about archaeologists finding the original 1784 Stafford County Courthouse (Story Below).  This courthouse is right down the street from our house and I figured this would be a good time to document some of the cool things there... 

This looks to be a place where you can go talk on your cell phone without anyone else hearing you.  I can't figure what  else this type of structure could be used for....

This shows the archaeological dig sites at the courthouse.

Here's a link to the story about the dig and finding the1784 courthouse.... 

This rock wall on the South side of the courthouse is constructed of remains of the old jail which sat nearby. 

Across Courthouse Road sits a complex of small buildings which appear to be one of the many motels that used to sit along old Highway 1.
