Not Very Nice, Irene! Batsto Village (c.1766) Sustains Storm Damage
Dating back to 1766, historic Batsto Village is what I consider: Photo-ready. Since I was first out of high school, I have taken photos there. But it seems that Hurricane Irene damaged many of the buildings, and the Dept. of Parks and Recreation is uncertain when it will be open. While this saddens me, I am hopeful that the trails are still open to visitors. It’s one of my favorite places to forest bathe, but I shall miss the whispers of ghosts who occupy the buildings.
