19th-Century Shotgun House FoundationYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Foundation remains of a 19th-century shotgun house and sub-floor cellar excavated in Washington, DC. The house was built by the 1850s with the cellar in the rear yard. Subsequently, the cellar was filled in and additions to the rear of the house covered it. The site was excavated by volunteers led by the District of Columbia City Archaeologist, Ruth Trocolli. The archaeological site is shown here with a partial reconstruction cuttaway of the brick foundation, showing the location of an interior wall that once covered the cellar, and the base of a nearby chimney. The reconstructed portions were modeled in Maya, and are shown partially transparent.
