Historical Village - Arbor


this beautiful arbor leads no where, there used to be a fence on either side, but it was torn down. I for one am glad they left it there.



In checking out history for this Historical Park I stumbled on the list of hurricanes from 1860. 

If you are interested in that CLICK HERE... It seems Sept/Oct was the busy season back then to.


Above is the three photos below merged into a collage in PicMonkey... Just Because...




Below is the population for Florida in 1860... the yellow is the part of Florida I live in, the red dot is MadSnapper territory. there were only 2 people per square mile, now we have 200,000 per square mile..

Our county in 2010 was 434 people per sq mile.. NO wonder the traffic is so  bad...

Going from 2 per sq. mile to 200,000 is quite a leap. Arbors add such interest to a place. Fun facts and images.

That arbor looks very nice. And population is rapidly increasing, isn't it? Nice to see your corner of the world on a map!

What a lovely arbor... and I'll bet there wasn't much traffic there back in 1860 like there is today! *giggle*

That arbor is a beautiful structure. And please don't send your extra population to NW Wisconsin. lol

Hi Sandra...The photos of the arbor are beautiful! We have one here and I really enjoy it. Not too many people have them like years ago. Wow, Florida has really grown over the years. I sure can understand all the traffic down there. Very interesting post!

I LOVE it! Now I can see exactly where you live!!! And I also really like the arbor collage of all of them put together! I wonder what the vine is, have you ever seen it in bloom?

Nice to see the Snapper territory in RED :)
I'll have to look closer and see if that is near my fav part of Florida Ocalla ~ horse country ...of course !

Michaele said...

That would be a delight to walk under.

Dee said...

200,000 people a square mile. Oh My...I will never complain about my traffic ever again.

Ann said...

I like that arbor and the collage of the three pictures is great.
Although I would love your weather I'm sure that if all the people didn't get to me the traffic would

I think Arbors are gorgeous and wish I had one - you have to really have the right setting. Those were nice.
