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.

  1. Mary Ann Piramalli Krengel

    The library is just as beautiful as it was in my high school years. It is not only the library that is beautiful. There are many other rooms along with the exterior architecture that are just as impressive. Fordson has a long rich history which present students and alumni love and appreciate. There is deep pride that runs through the heart of all those that had the good fortune to attend as a student or work at Fordson as a staff member. A great article, Paulette.
