FullSizeRender[5]

Books on shelves and the inviting calm of a library present a fascinating subject for this book lover. I’m always both excited and comforted to visit a library. I have my favorites. This library is one of them. Until recently, I hadn’t visited this one for a number of years. As you can see from the pictures, it is a beautiful place.

Fordson High School was completed in 1928 and was constructed in Collegiate Gothic Style. It is reported to have cost 2.2 million and I have read that it was the first million-dollar high school in Michigan.

Come on in and enjoy the views.

The library shows off handcarved oak paneling, wall murals and tapestries.

Furnishings are of Jacobean fumed-oak. I don’t know exactly what that is but wood and books make great companions.
