New life for historic Findlay Apartments

Postby newsposter » Mon Apr 01, 2013 9:51 am

Story, including video, on the transformation of the 1909 Findlay Apartments on 1st Street SW into a home for women fleeing domestic violence. The building is being legally protected by the City as a historic resource, which means it cannot be demolished in the future. Kudos to the people behind this project which meets a social need and preserves heritage.
