Historical buildings can earn money, teach history

Replying to Patricia Blades’ letter of Thursday, April 19, I totally agree. I have thought of this for a long time. Historical buildings all over the world that relate the history of the houses are open to travellers for tours.

Mt Vernon in Washington, the home of George Washington, is one and old homes in the French Quarter of New Orleans do this and gain financially.

This helps to finance the upkeep of them, and here it would, as Ms Blades stated, contribute to foreign exchange. It should be encouraged.

Also, young people would gain knowledge and appreciation of their country and its culture.
