2nd largest Ginko Tree in the U.S.
Another shot of the Old Government Building. It's a little difficult to see in this picture, the tree to the top right corner is recognized as the 2nd largest Ginko Tree in the U.S. Supposedly it was planted in 1791 to commemorate George Washington's visit to Augusta, Ga.
There is also the biggest Magnolia Tree I've ever seen just to the right of the Ginko.
Telfair Street must have been really grand back in its day. However, the homes and buildings did not have the blessing of the large trees that grace the grounds we see and visit today.
