Armour Chapel New Edition

A new restroom and waiting area is being added to Armour Chapel in Elmwood Cemetery.  It replaces the old wooden structure that had served its purpose, but never really looked good with the older architecture.    The Chapel was built in 1902 to honor Kirkland Armour who was instrumental in creating the organization behind the Elmwood of today.   This even marks another step in the restoration of the cemetery by the new Board.  This will mean the Chapel can start hosting more events again. 

Simon Abraham, President of the Board of Trustees for the Elmwood Cemetery Scciety, made a few opening remarks before striking the first blow in demolition of the old structure. 

Channel 41 was there to capture the event...above Steve Paddock took a turn with the sledge hammer.

Fresh New Life


Light spring rain didn't dampen the beauty of fresh new Japanese Maple leaves. A sign of renewal.

Save The Crossroads - Volume 5

                            Fire Station Number 8, 1885, First floor is an art gallery, second floor a B&B.                   All of these structures will be demolished to make way for the baseball stadium . 


Green Dirt.   First floor being renovated into a restaurant, second floor and roof deck for events. 
                                                                  How ironic is this?
