The shoe's about to fall Inside the Footprint






















Federal Judge Eldon Fallon just denied the National Trust for Historic Preservation's motion for summary judgment, which sought an injunction to stop property acquisition and demolition inside the VA hospital footprint.

From what I hear, demolition of a few properties - historic properties that were determined to be "contributing properties" to the National Register Historic District that encompasses the VA hospital footprint - is about to get underway.  The photo above shows some architectural detail from one of the contributing properties, a shotgun at 325 S. Tonti, that's supposedly slated for demolition in the near future.

I'm doing my best to keep tabs over at Inside the Footprint.
