After 200 years a building is seen as permanent part of the neighborhood landscape. A constant in the ever-changing look of our city.

The fire department was called and the blaze was extinguished in a matter of minutes but the damage had been done. The roof was compromised, smoke and soot covered every surface from the attic truss space to the gym in the basement. Fire had burned through walls, floors and ceilings.
