NAMED Buildings

While touring Iowa small towns, I tuned into Named Buildings: named for their builders/owners in the case of private Shopfront Buildings or for their functions in the case of Civic Buildings, sometimes declaring the ideals of the community, as well. All in the Architecture. I especially appreciate the buildings marked with dates. I think all things created should be dated: maps, photos, art, clothing, furniture, tools, etc. Historic towns as well as Antique shops could be self-guided museums of history and evolutionary timelines.


This one is hard to see, but the date is actually patterned into the roof with red shingles.
