Squint Shot 121010

The building just south of Kim's on North Grand River, formerly the Butler Gun Shop, is looking rather sad. But, then again, the building is probably over 100 years old. It is worth taking a closer look at some of the brickwork on the building. The following picture, which can be found in my book, The Fowlerville Chronicles, under 1900, shows the east side of the northeast quadrant looking somewhat southeast from the middle of the road at about Power Street. The one-story, as well as the two-story that does have "Butler Gun Shop" on it, are shown. In some of our wilder dreams to have a museum-of-sorts for all of the Fowlerville historical collection and other memoriabilia, I've often wondered if one of these empty buildings might just be the ticket. But then . . . I guess it's only a dream at this point.
