State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

My father, brother, and I drove through in the summer of 1988.


About 1970, London Bridge did not fall down. It was carefully disassembled, transported half way around the world, and rebuilt on the Arizona shore of the Colorado River at Lake Havasu City. The relocated bridge was dedicated on October 10, 1971 with many British and Arizona officials participating. There were controversies such as why do it at all and whether coins in the foundation were part of the bridge that was sold, or the foundation that stayed. Today a small Old London themed shopping center surrounds one end of the bridge that connects to an island that was created by dredging a channel to go under the bridge.

Support this Web Site

I hope that you find this web site helpful. It started because of my love for Architecture and interest in History. I don't allow paid advertising (but this may change). This web site is for your benefit and enjoyment and I make no profit on it. For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. A non-tax deductable donation helps cover the cost of operating this web site and may be made to Kesign Design Consulting through PayPal.
