Say Goodbye

October 12, 2012 |

St. Paul’s Catholic chapel and other Madison buildings will be demolished soon.


Cities grow and change. Buildings are designed, built and demolished all the time. Some take on cultural or historic significance during their lifetime, and some get legal recognition as historic places that are important to a city’s identity and sense of Place. For these we need to go through legal processes and have community conversations when someone wants to demolish them.

Here are some buildings that have been demolished recently or will be soon. None of them have legal recognition as historic buildings, except for the ones on State St. which were officially determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places as a Historic District along State St. but never got the legal designation at the federal level.
