>Historic buildings in Bessemer

>Have you voted? The unscientific Bessemer Opinions poll has Claire Mitchell winning the district 56 primary without a runoff! Low turnout is expected, so your vote could really make a difference. Go now!

I don’t know the history of this building. I don’t know when it was built. I don’t know what it’s original purpose was.

I do know that it is one of Bessemer’s historic buildings.

But there’s no preservation going on here. Yesterday the building came down, as you can see in this picture from the rear.

This is unrelated, but just a block away, the remains of this building sit on this corner for months. Why hasn’t this been cleaned up?

Three blocks away, a burned building sat for months before the lot was cleaned off. And that didn’t happen until the city decided to build the new DHR building there. Click here to see how the DHR building will look.

This building had an advertisement painted on it. The Bessemer Historical Homeowners Association is interested in it. More on this in a few days.

Bing Perrine of Billings, Montana collapsed last year because of congenital heart problems and needed open heart surgery. Can you imagine holding bake sales to fund your life saving surgery? That’s what our country has come to, and that is what the Republicans (and Max Baucus) are fighting for. The status quo.
I’m fortunate, I guess. I know how to bake.
