Published

France is known for its food, culture, and architecture. It is home to some of the oldest structures in the world. The Cairn of Barnenez is a Neolithic monument in northern Finistère, France. It dates back to 4800 BC. You can see the history of France through its many different architectural styles. When we think of old traditional French architecture, buildings like the Palace of Versailles and the Notre-Dame come to mind but, did you know the Louxor obelisk (even though it was a gift from Egypt) was built in 13 BC? The Les arènes de Lutèce, a Roman amphitheater that use to show gladiator fights, is dated in the 1st century. The Abbaye saint Germain des prés is 6th century. Many of the most famous buildings in France are located in the capital of Paris. You know of the Eiffel tower and the Louve, but there is also beautiful architecture all over the city neighborhoods. If you walk down any Paris street you see buildings that were built hundreds of years ago. This beautiful map of Paris shows the ages of livable dwellings throughout the city.

This Map Shows the Age of Every Building in Paris, France

The color-coded geo map shows how old the buildings in Paris are, ranging from 2 years all the way up to 821 years old. You can see the oldest buildings are located in the center of the map and buildings outside of that tend to be newer. Imagine living in a building that is over 800 years old? The sights, the sounds, the ghost stories that must be a part habitation in such a historic location. The oldest buildings in the United States are only over 300 years old, a far cry from many of the buildings on this map.

Which State is Leading The Nation in Electric Vehicles?

Published

on

Which U.S. state would you guess has the most electric vehicles? If you said California, you’d be right! Not only does California have the most electric vehicles overall due to its large population, but California was also found to have the highest rate of electric vehicles on a per capita basis. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the total number of electric vehicle registrations in California reached a high of 425,300. This amounts to a rate of 1,083.9 registrations for every 100,000 people that live in the state. California’s high rate of electric vehicles may be due to the state releasing a plan to phase out gas-powered cars by 2035 to try and improve air quality.

On the flip side, which state in the U.S. has the lowest rate of electric vehicles on the roads? Mississippi’s low number of electric vehicle registrations puts it at the bottom of the list. Only 780 electric vehicles have been registered in the state of Mississippi, leading to a low rate of just 26.34 electric vehicle registrations for every 100,000 people. How many electric vehicles are on the road in all of the other U.S. states? Learn more with this chart that was created by the people at AlansFactoryOutlet.com and ranks all fifty states based on the number of electric vehicles that have been registered per 100,000 residents. Read on to see which states are leading the nation when it comes to driving electric vehicles, and which states still have a long way to go.

Did you know that the Jim Beam Distillery has been in operation since George Washington was president? It was established in 1975, making it the oldest business in Kentucky. That’s why I love gathering content to share with Chartistry; you get to learn all sorts of obscure trivia!

The oldest business in the United States that is still operational is the Shirley Plantation in Charles City, Virginia. The grounds were first established in 1613 by English merchant and politician Sir Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr. Here is another fun fact about the baron; the bay, river, a Native American people, and a U.S. state were all named “Delaware” after him.

The second oldest business in America is Tuttle’s Red Barn in Dover, New Hampshire, established in 1632. There are claims that it is the oldest known family-owned farm in America, but this has been challenged. It has been passed down across eleven generations since John Tuttle arrived in the New World with a land grant from Charles II of England. It was originally 20 acres, but it expanded to its peak of 240 acres during the 20th century. Nowadays, the farm’s largest crop is sweet corn.
