There’s a building that has been standing strong outside Williamston’s downtown district since the late 1800s. The old community school has been refurbished to serve a new purpose. From the wear and tear of students age 6 to 18, multiple fires, and a tornado hitting the city, the building still remains a gathering place for Williamston. Dearborn, Michigan’s historic City Hall has been transformed into housing for artists and their families. In South Haven, an empty high school has been transformed into contemporary lofts.
