A continuation of our Tuskegee University field trip. . .
Although we were unable to go inside the home, we enjoyed walking around the outside of it and admiring the architectural details. Tuskegee has always had a school of architecture, or at least I gather that from some things we saw in the museum. I was also fascinated to learn that the students literally built the school from the ground up, so many of the original buildings are built with bricks made on site. (I’m not sure if this is true of The Oaks, but I am fascinated by the pinkish-brown mortar between the bricks!)
