A visit to the Chaloner Building in Adrian, Michigan gave Norm and I a chance to engage professionally with Mayor Jim Berryman, local historian ScottWestfall, and other local development team members about the potential and opportunities for rehabilitation of this building. Adrian’s streetscape is incredibly intact and holds great architectural interest for its diversity of styles. Flanking buildings from the same time period add to the challenges of isolating an initial project with room to grow.
It was interesting and exciting to see our book, Historic Preservation: An Introduction to Its History, Principles and Practices, translated into Korean. The illustrations are familiar, but the narrative is incomprehensible, so we are not sure how good the translation might be, but hope it is representative of the English version. In any case, we are pleased to see it being used in another culture.
