Recap: New Albany Historic Home Tour 2013.
After the bedlam in Lanesville, we returned to New Albany around lunchtime on Saturday and strolled portions of the home tour. The view above shows wooden beams at the old Buchheit brewery building on 10th Street, which is being renovated as a dwelling.
Before Saturday, I'd never set foot in either the Town Hall Clock Church or the Scribner House. The latter prompted what I'll recall as the day's chief memory: The contrast between the south side of Main Street and the north.
I'll merely note that over the past few years, raising this topic of former windows, it seems that about the only issue that anyone in a position of authority in the city of New Albany actually agrees upon is the hopelessness of curing windowlessness. It's nothing against any building owner; we all have our particular issues, me included ... but really?
Is it really something that nothing can be done about?
