SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Students from the American College of the Building Arts are working at the Colonial Dorchester State Historic site to help tell the story of 1 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 4-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.
