The Colonial Flavor of Norwalk
Nice piece by Richard Zimmeraman, an architecht, in the Examiner, about the colonial influences on Norwalk architecture, including a cool slide show featuring shots of the Huron County Courthouse, the old jail and downtown. It opens like this: As you travel the rural roads that wend their way over the gently rolling terrain of northern Ohioamong crops and farms and manufactories, you might encounter a number of establishments containing ‘Firelands’ in their names — or perhaps come upon one of the many small landmark signs welcoming you to the Firelands, established in 1792. For here, more than 700 miles from the Colonial coasts of Revolutionary America, you will be surveying a historical remnant of our nation’s founding.
