Behind the scenes at Rosedale, Windsor, and Walthall

On this hump day, a short post to point you to some interesting behind-the-scenes pictures from historic preservation projects going on around the state. If you’re on Facebook, you may want to connect with the MDAH Technical Services page, which posts updates and photos from ongoing projects. Here are a few images of the Bolivar County Courthouse at Rosedale (1922-24, Kramer & Lindsley, archts; S.W. Leard, contractor), which had a grand re-opening on Monday after a multi-year renovaton project that repaired some severe structural damage (even if you’re not on Facebook–and I salute you if you’re not!–you can click on the image below to see the larger images):

Last week, MDAH posted photos of the archaeological dig at Windsor Ruins, which has uncovered the massive brick chain wall that holds those iconic columns up:

  1. Thank you for sparing me from Facebook :) but I am curious now so I may have to explore a bit. But I am wondering about the brick supports at Windsor. Do they give any details about how this works? Maybe a future post (hint hint).
