« Another mass shooting. No more "thoughts and prayers." Gun control ACTION! | Main | Strange Up Salem logo: story behind the art »

Here we go again. Being far away-ish and somewhat off the radar compared to Howard Hall this will be a lot harder to save I'm afraid.

LeBreton Hall at Fairview or Howard Hall at the Oregon State School for the Blind, I don't see the difference. Both represent the State of Oregon walking away from the history of disabled populations. This will make me yet again very sad for the state of historic preservation in Salem.

historic buildings are one of our few connections to the past. Books can be rewritten, but stone can stand forever- well almost forever. The Pyramids of giza. the sphinx. The eiffel tower.
