Students from the American College of the Building Arts are working at the Colonial Dorchester State Historic site to help tell the story of one of South Carolina's earliest colonial settlements.

Students laid bricks Friday to mark the outline of a foundation of a house built in the late 1600's at the site near Summerville. Until now, all that could be seen were the remains of a church tower and a stockade. But the foundations of dozens of buildings lay beneath the earth.

The school in Charleston is the only four-year college in the nation teaching traditional building arts such as stone carving and timber framing.

Colonial Dorchester is on the site of a town that flourished from the late 1600s through the beginning of Revolutionary War.
