Scenic Sunday

Scenic Sunday is a photo meme of the scenery. It can be landscapes, buildings, flowers, or anything you feel it's a scenery photo. This meme will be held every weekend. To join, just post your scenery shots on your blog and link back to Scenic Sunday.
 Our City fathers have decided to return our little town to it's original beauty. After spending the 70's and 80s trying to modernize it, they have realized it was better the old way. All of the buildings in Brookhaven had balconies with wrought iron  rails around them, like the one in the picture, but in the 70's the city planners thought they were too old fashion so they tore them they are starting to put them back.
 This is the same building on the left side of the street corner, last year when they first started remodeling it. The bank building on the right side was redone in the 70s, so sad the original building was just beautiful with it's stone facing. The Brookhaven sign was finally replaced 5 yrs ago. It was first put up in 1908, but was donated for scrap iron during during WW11 when metal was in short supply.


  1. Molly I have been out of town so I am enjoying catching up on your posts.
    I have to say I love your blog! You have such a happy view on life and nature. I always live your stories and pictures!

    Todays post is interesting. Sometimes city planners have a way of trying to update a city that takes away it's personality and natural charm .
    I am so glad that the buildings in your town will be restored. Exciting!

  2. What a pretty little downtown! We have NOTHING here. NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING, all of it was torn down in the "wonderful" 1960s in a rush to modernize the world.

  3. I think that is a good idea. When will it be done and how much did it cost? Who paid?


  4. The old town squares are the neatest. I luv our plain little ol town.
