Once a cotton plantation owned by a single family for more than 140 years, Jarrell Plantation survived Gen. Sherman’s “March to the Sea,” typhoid fever, the cotton boll weevil, the advent of steam power and a transition from farming to forestry. In 1847, John Fitz Jarrell built a simple heart pine house typical of most plantations and made many of the furnishings visitors see today. In 1860, the 600-acre plantation was farmed by 39 slaves. After the Civil War, John increased his land to nearly 1,000 acres farmed by former slaves. As John aged, most workers left and the slave houses deteriorated and disappeared. After John’s death, his son, Dick Jarrell, gave up teaching to return to the farm, and in 1895, he built a small house for his family that grew to 12 children. Dick diversified the farm, adding a sawmill, cotton gin, gristmill, shingle mill, planer, sugar cane press, syrup evaporator, workshop, barn and outbuildings. In 1974, his descendants donated these buildings to establish Jarrell Plantation State Historic Site. #antebellumtrail #historicsite #jarrellplantation #jonescounty #exploregeorgia at Jarrell Plantation Historic Site

Some architectural goodness for you. Vatican city was pretty amazing... I'm not religious and personally find the whole concept of religion a bit weird, but it's hard not to be impressed with the art and history of this place. **If you are religious in any way, I respect your views like you should mine.** (I felt like I had to say that, coz 2019) . . . . . . #architecture #absolute_shots #absol10k #arch #placeofworship #basilica #church #medievalarchitecture #BeAlpha #cathedral #byzantinearchitecture #vault #stockphotography #classicalarchitecture #chapel #symmetry #historicsite #city #history #rome #vaticancity #art #artofvisuals #artist #graphic #illustration #instaart #pen #artoftheday #gallery at Vatican City

Construction started in 1192 and completed in 1220. Restoration works/additions were made in the 12th century, 14th century and 19th century. Qutb ud-Din Aibak, the founder of the Turkish rule in north-western India and also of the Mamluk Dynasty in Delhi commissioned the construction of this monument in 1192 AD. Aibak dedicated the minaret to the Muslim Sufi mystic, saint and scholar of the Chishti Order, Qutbuddin Bakhtiar Kaki. Qutub Minar or Qutb Minar, a 73 m (240 ft.) high tower made of red sandstone and marble is not only the highest brick minaret in the world but also one of the most famous historical landmarks of India. The construction of this tower of victory was started by the founder of the Mamluk Dynasty in Delhi, Qutb ud-Din Aibak and completed by his successor and son-in-law Iltutmish.

The Oklahoma City Bombing Museum was dedicated at the Oklahoma City National Memorial on February 19, 2001. Though very sobering and heart wrenching, the experience serves as a remarkable testament to the will, courage and indefatigable spirit of Oklahomans to pull together and rebuild their city after such a horrendous tragedy.

Soul Consoling Tower, Manzanar Cemetery. . Manzanar was the site of one of the ten American concentration camps, where over 110,000 Japanese Americans, mostly US citizens, were incarcerated during WWII from 1942-1945. On this day in 1942 President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, clearing the way for the incarceration of Japanese Americans, as well as a smaller number of German Americans and Italian Americans. . #manzanar #executiveorder #executiveorder9066 #itcouldhappenagain #history #historyrepeatsitself #americanhistory #wwii #thepresident #concentrationcamp #japaneseamericans #citizens #roosevelt #presidentroosevelt #historicsite #sacredsites #sacred #cemetery #war #warrelocationcenter #incarcerated #americanlandscape #california #memorial #memorialtower at Manzanar, California

I love the story of the Bear Gates of Traquair House, which you can see in the distance. The gates of Scotland’s oldest continually inhabited house have been locked since 1745 on the instruction they remain closed until the Stuart Dynasty returns to the throne. They were closed behind “Bonnie Prince Charlie” Stuart as he rode away to restore the Stuart Dynasty to the throne. Unfortunately for the inhabitants of Traquair, Bonnie Prince Charlie and his Highland Army were defeated in the Battle of Culloden months later, and, though he escaped back to mainland Europe with his life, his dynasty never returned. #history #beargates #traquairhouse #innerleithen #scottishborders #scotland #historicscotland #historicsite #bonnieprincecharlie #stuartdynasty #thestuarts #loveagoodstory #sighseeing #ig_scotland #historichouses #historyfacts #historybuff #historygeek #lovescotland #instascotland

7 metre tall Buddha (or possibly, Buddhist monk) statue, carved out of a rock face in Sri Lanka, alongside a reclining and a sitting Buddha. Part of one of the 100+ temples built by a 12th century king. This king, Parakramabahu I, was quite the organizer. He unified Sri Lanka's 3 kingdoms and 3 Buddhists schools, and got rid of all the corrupt monks; built vast irrigation schemes; and undertook military campaigns in India and Burma. He felt that "not even a little water that comes from the rain must flow into the ocean without being made useful to man." * * #buddhastatue #bigbuddha #statues #buddhatemple #amazingasia #travelasia #southasia #culturetrip #history #historicsite #unescoworldheritage #ancient #monument #ancientbuilding #architecture #photoarchitecture #phototraveller #phototour #travelphotooftheday #travelphotograpy #travelinspiration #travelwithme #traveltips #borntotravel #vacationgoals #makingmemories #amazingplace #wonderfulworld #srilankatravel #srilankatourism at Polonnaru Gal Vihara Temple

In Pragua, Czech Republic 🇨🇿 — — — ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️ The old Jewish cemetery the second oldest Jewish cemetery in Europe. The cemetery was founded in the 15 th century. About 20 000 gravestones seem to be pressed to each other and variously inclined. It is because of the lack of space in the Old Jewish Cemetery: during the centuries, the graves had to be put one on another, somewhere even in twelve layers. It is forbidden to picture dead people in the Jewish faith, so there are various symbols on the graves to indicate who is buried there. For example, the musicians´ graves are adorned with a violin, scissors indicate a tailor, a crown belongs to the erudite men and so on. An animal symbol mostly signifies the dead man´s surname (e.g. a lion on the Rabi Loew´s grave). #cemetery #culturetrip #allsaints #allsaintsday #jewish #praga #czechrepublic #mustsee #historicsite #amazingplaces #placestovisit #wheretogo #travelholic #traveladdicted #toussaint #discover_vacations #discover_earth #visualsofearth #earthpix #whereintheworld #worldtour #ig_europa #ig_europe #iamatraveler #amazing_shots #europe_pics #travelnow #travelingtheworld #travelingtroughtheworld #tripaddicts at Old Jewish Cemetery, Prague
