alms-houses


The last time I was in England my mom pointed these houses out to me and said they were quite old. I took a look and sign over these houses said:

These alms-houses, left by the will of Mr. Stephen Dunton in 1517, and endowed by Mr. William Littebury in 1571, were rebuilt by order of the governors in the year of our Lord 1806, restored and modernized in 1966. So these houses are close to 500-years old - my mom was not kidding that they are old! Thanks for showing them to me mom.
