St. George Street Area Being Cleared for Reconstruction Project.
This view shows where three reconstructed houses will rise
next to the Benet Grocery. In the foreground are some of the
old walls which have been uncovered. One of the houses to be
reconstructed dates back to the first Spanish period and the
other two were probably built around the second Spanish period,
according to findings.
