In early September 2016 Dr. Jeffrey Tilman’s Historic Preservation class at UC/ DAAP came to tour three of Mt. Healthy’s historic buildings. The class is part of the program through which students will receive a certificate in historic preservation. This semester, the class’ 30+ students, ranging from undergraduate to PhD to second career return students, are going to thoroughly measure and inspect the Main Theater (7436 Hamilton), the Covered Bridge Antique Mall (7508 Hamilton) , the mid-century former Starlight Hall/Girmann’s Catering (7612 Hamilton) , and the building currently holding the Aquatics and Exotics (7513 Hamilton). They will look at systems, conditions of the buildings, make drawings and assessments of the buildings’ condition and needs. It was exciting to have all of the energy in our uptown. Thanks to Terri Treinen, board member, architect by profession and former student at DAAP, who arranged this great connection.
