The Carter Building: The last 3D model ever for Google Earth

Since Google has abandoned hand-crafted 3D models in favor of automated, blanket 3D images of cities, they are no longer accepting user generated 3D models.  The restored Carter building and adjoining 110-112 Front St. buildings were uploaded just prior to the October 1st deadline.  It and other 3D models of downtown Hattiesburg are expected to remain intact on Google Earth for quite some time before Google gets around to auto-generated images of the Hattiesburg area.
