Saving Old Main
Finally, some long overdue repairs to one of America’s most endangered historic places.
Known as Old Main, the centerpiece of the Northwestern Branch of the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers has been crumbling for decades now. During the winter of 2010 the roof collapsed, creating a hole that remained open to the weather and caused further damage to the building.
Finally, work has begun to save the building. Crews are now laboring to stabilize the building and seal the roof. For more information visit Save the Soldiers Home. Photos by Save the Soldiers Home.
