Historic Building Graveyard

Shared by Dan Rose Historic Building Graveyard Photo

Tucked between the Winspear and Chancery Hall, you'll find a curious public space. This place is kinda neat and kinda sad. On this spot, you'll find several architectural fragments from demolished historic buildings that once previously occupied downtown; everything from window openings and arches to other pieces of brick and concrete, as well as a plaque marking the former civic block. It's a bizarre public demonstration of the city's difficulty in preserving our built heritage, but it's also an interesting lesson that could hopefully inform a future where our city values and actively protects our built heritage with focused investment and policy tools.
