O’Fallon Neighborhood Survey Continues

Yesterday the Preservation Research Office staff spent the morning undertaking our second session of intensive photography for the neighborhood-wide architectural survey funded by Alderman Antonio French through The Acts Partnership. We are photographing each and every one of the neighborhood’s lovely buildings in order to prepare descriptions of each one needed for the National register of Historic Places historic district nomination we will submit this year.

Here are some of yesterday’s scenes.

These two connected buildings are at the southwest corner of Lee and Warne avenues.

    I believe Alderman French is working hard to improve his ward. I’m not saying other alderman don’t, it just is Alderman French seems to have a good instincts about his ward. Great job pulling this together, some nice buildings and neighborhoods, the Acts Partnership looks to be headed in a good direction.
