Springfield Tornado, Tribute to a GREAT City 2011

878

Published on

This slide look focuses on the devastation cause by the Tornado with a special emphasis on historic resource. Many lifes have been damaged or disrupted. But it is also important to realize that Springfield was once a very rich city and that the built environment we've inherited is irreplaceable and wonderful. Apparently FEMA has a historic preservation unit headed by John Ketchum, in DC (john.ketchum@dhs.gov). It's important that we lean on them to assess that aspect of this situation to be sure that those things that can be saved, are saved - especially the Ames Hill campus of MacDuffie
