Joel Eddins House – Alabama
The home was built in 1810 by Joel Eddin, a settler from South Carolina. It’s a classic log cabin home in a “hall and parlor” style, which is not common for Alabama homes. It was moved from its original location to Burritt on the Mountain and restored in 2007.
American Company Magazin/Erskine House – Alaska
This was built in 1810, which was duringÂ the Russian colonization of Alaska. It was simply used as a storage facility for the Russian-American Company. Now, it is used as a museum to remember those times in Alaska’s history.
Mission San Xavier Del Bac -Arizona
This historic Spanish building once housed a Spanish Catholic mission. The mission was founded in 1692, and the building itself was built between 1783 and 1797. By historian standards, this is one of the best examples of any Spanish colonial architecture in that day and age. That’s easy to agree with… It’s beautiful!
