Horace Mann Building Worthy of Saving

Workers were busy boarding up windows this morning as I walked the dog around the block where the Horace Mann building sits empty.

On our daily walks I’ve noticed a significant increase in the amount of trash gathering around the block. Discarded beer cans, fast food remnants and packaging, condoms and hygiene products are common and I can’t walk ten feet in either direction without willing the dog to leave them alone.

I’ve already witnessed some of the effects, but the following article illustrates the possible repercussions of this stately building being shuttered for too long.

Can we save the old Horace Mann School?
