One thing that struck me in my time in Vermont --- Every town had a few churches. My "town" might have been 1000 people, but we had three churches. The Pastor of the Unitarian one introduced himself to us while we where unloading the truck . . . Strangely, New England ranks high in non-religious statistics today, but centuries ago, it was settled by people who rejected new, Jefferson era, science based, america.

Why do you call yourself Dayton Sux ? Dayton has some stuff that fits nicely with the topic of this thread? I think Ohio has some really cool places that are overlooked by everyone. An argument that will keep Leave it to Beaver fans terminally arguing is what town in Ohio is being portrayed even though it was filmed on the less desirable coast

I can't speak for Dayton Sux, becasue he or she might have other reasons. But one thing I don't like about Youngstown is their (the community and city officials) gung-ho attitude toward demolition. From what I've read, Dayton has the same issue. Basically, city leaders won't stop "improving" your historic, urban neighborhood until it's gone.

OK, thank you x2

We are going through the same thing here in Louisville.
I just dont get it. With sooooooooooo much information available in this age, how can our wise and venerable overseer's not be able to look at destination cities in the USA and not agree that historic architecture is a compelling factor for people to spend lots of discretionary income on to visit
If I want nu-gen architecture I will book a cleaning at my dentists office and soak up all the ambience that cheap drywall and plastic flowers might provide

Jeez, just walked a few hours in Charleston, SC. Talk about a gem! That is a city that can teach many areas of the country how to do city right! So much history, so many jewels. Every street that came into view made me oooh and aaah. Walkable. So many people on bicycles. This is a city that makes you want to leave the car behind! Fantastic.

It often helps greatly to have been built before cars.

Yes, of course. But it didn't mean that it all had to become into what it has become - whatever that might be...certainly something lacking the charm of Charleston and many similar cities.
