1. There'll be a talk about historic houses amid the felled timber.

At the C-J, Jenna Esarey describes another chat about historic houses.

Talk to decode historic houses of New Albany

The architecture of a building tells its history in brick and mortar, stone and wood, for those who know how to interpret the walls.

Three historians will translate some of those stories as they present “Historic Houses of New Albany, Indiana” at the Culbertson Mansion State Historic Site on Sunday at 2 p.m.

The photo accompanying this article was taken in front of the Culbertson Mansion on Main Street in New Albany.

Here are a few other views of Main Street, as recorded by my handy iPhone last week during those rare moments when it wasn't beeping and honking with messages from people wanting to know why "they were gonna take our farmers market away."

The East Main Street Improvement Project is our handy antidote to Jeff Speck, before we even pay him for the street study.

2. There'll be a talk about historic houses as we count the felled tree's rings to see how long it's been since Elvis mattered.

3. There'll be a talk about historic houses as we celebrate IL's Paradise by the Ongoing Blight.
