And just in the nick of time because the next block should be released within the next week. (I think!)
Not a whole lot going on this week so nothing really to post about. We've had a good bit of rain in the past two days. The creeks are beginning to go down but now the river is starting to rise. I don't believe they are predicting it to flood though.
Ohio River at Moundsville
On my home from taking the river pics I passed by the Mound. While I was stopped at the stop sign I snapped a picture. It's taken from the south side...opposite of the main entrance to the Mound Museum.
Grave Creek MoundThe mound used to be covered in trees way back when but over the years many have been removed. Now there are hardly any at all still standing.
Not sure when this photo Post Card was actually taken but it is postmarked Mar. 28, 190? I can't make out whether it's 1900, 1908 or 1909. Anyways you can see how many trees once stood upon the mound.
I love history and am happy to have found these old postcards on Ebay several years ago. I'll have to share a few more of them one day soon.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
