On street corners all over downtown there is art like this. The building in the background is the old high school. It has new life as the Washington Pavilion - more about that below.
A foggy, wet day for a walk. How did I miss all this majesty when I was growing up?
The Carnegie Library now houses government offices. The building has a rounded backside.
My dad's alma mater, I can imagine him going through these doors. The high school building is in use today as an art gallery, orchestra hall and a science center with an IMAX Theatre
A downtown fire station, historical markers tell about the time Teddy Roosevelt came to town to campaign. There's a tower on the other side - wonder what that was used for?
The Pettigrew Museum
The museum entrance - petrified wood
One of the many Quartzite stairways at Terrace Park.
The rock used for these buildings is native Sioux Quartzite. I took all this extraordinary architecture in my hometown for granted growing up. Now, I am proud of this city's historical preservation of these landmark buildings. Even on a gray day their beauty shines through.
