Day 4 - Got up this morning and headed out to get some more pictures of the bridge. Took a walk across the bridge and got some shots from the other side also. See Suspension Bridge album in this folder.
Took a walk up the street to where the Fort Henry once stood and got a couple pics of the historical marker sign. Also got some pics of the Capitol Music Hall. Then walked up the street into the 1st block of the Victorian section of town. See the Around Town album in this folder.
Off to find Tunnel Green. Yesterday, Crystal showed us a place to pick up the trail to Tunnel Green. We walked up the trail and found the tunnel. We walked through the tunnel to the other side where we found a sign describing where we were. It noted Wetzel's Cave also. After getting some pics of the tunnel, we went into the woods looking for Wetzel's Cave..... see Tunnel Green album in this folder.
After leaving Tunnel Green, we drove up Rock Point Road a bit further and found the old cemetery above Tunnel Green, called Manchester Cemetery. This old cemetery has been abandoned and forgotten....kind of creepy walking through all the mishapped headstones, most of which you cant read, some sunken into the ground, some overgrown with trees and weeds that you can barely see... see Manchester Cemetery album in this folder.
About 12:00 we headed back to Mt. de Chantal to pick up Sister Mary Grace. We went to Perkins and got some lunch and chit chatted about family history. When we were done, she lead us around town to show us some parts of town she remembers. She took us to the Cathedral but it was locked up and closed for the day. She took us past the bank where there is a plaque on the outside wall in rememberence of James R Flynn. She took us by a home she lived in on National Road. We went past 18 Ruby Ave again.
