Week 25 # Aged To Perfection

This cobblestone alley lies steps away from Snake Alley in Burlington, IA. that I highlighted in Week 1.  This area is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and also in the Heritage Hill Historic District.  The district includes ten historic properties and this cobblestone alley lies on the eastern boundary.  Snake Alley was built in 1894, so I assume this one was built during that same time period.  You can see the well worn ridges in the cobblestones that helped it become “Aged To Perfection” from all means of transportation.
