I figured some must be tired of all those polls about who has this and that. Im guilty of making a couple, so Id like to see something with no competition :D Id like to see photos of the historic neighborhoods, landmarks, buildings that set your city apart from the rest. The South is full of history, Ill start off by posting some shots of Richmond's Historic Shockoe Slip and Shockoe Bottom District.

While some may not consider this historic, these trees on Main Street have been very significant in Greenville since they were planted 25 years ago. Talk about unique charm!

What a great thread idea! here are some photos from Spartanburg's Morgan Square, the historic core of the city. Morgan Square was recently renovated, so everything still looks fresh.
