Way back when

These stairs are about 200+ (a lot) years old
About the time of the War of 1812 actually and there is half a chance that some British soldiers from their fort at Sag Harbor bounced around on them.

I like old things, being old myself.  Mostly I like old things that are mixed in with some history. Beethoven was deaf but writing good stuff in Vienna.  Schubert, Von Weber..gads lots of amazing music was composed at this same time. Napoleon...well...oh oh oh and Andy Jackson in New Orleans.

Anyway, there is some good stuff regarding a fine fellow named "Return Meigs"....Fort Meigs near Detroit was named after him. This is about him and the area.  He may have stayed in this boarding house. May have. Not likely but perhaps and climbed these very steps.

Just a thought in passing.
