  1. Richmond’s Round Church is a National Historic Landmark. This side view is particularly interesting because it shows the accessible entrance that uses landforms to bring the sidewalk grade up to the side door entrance. Outside the door is a grate so that water and snow fall through the grate to drainage.

  2. I love this building, in part because it is so unique. The only other round colonial church in North America, I’m pretty sure, is the one in my home town. It was built in 1800, and features Haley’s Comet as a weathervane, after the comet appeared in 1835:
