Court Building Crumbles: Mid-American Wrecking Corp.'s crane has arrived on the scene to help with the demolition of the fire-damaged and vacant Municipal Court Building at 104 to 112 W. Huron. The contractor hopes to have the work finished by Christmas, weather and other conditions permitting. Until then, barricades will prevent pedestrians from walking in the area and the south-bound land of the 100 block of Main Street and the west-bound lane of the 100 block of W. Huron Street will be closed to traffic periodically. No plans have been announced for the site.

Old Sign Uncovered on Municipal Court Building


Old Sign Uncovered on Municipal Court Building

Past Reappears: Catching the eye of many persons in the Huron-Main Sts. Area is this "Savings Bank Block" sign cut into stone on the side of a building at the northwest corner of the streets. The original sign, at least part of it, was revealed when the "Municipal Court Building" sign was removed in connection with remodeling of the building. Missing from the original sign is a top line that read, "Ann Arbor." The building once was the location of the former Ann Arbor Savings Bank, which was merged into the present Ann Arbor Bank. Banking in the building ended in 1936.

Downtown Modernization: The Municipal Court Building at W. Huron and N. Main Sts. Downtown has a new appearance on its Huron side. The three-story structure is being refaced with a fireproof glass-topped material in blue and white. The modernization project is eliminating all "gingerbread" projections on the building in favor of the "curtain-wall" material. The building is getting new aluminum windows, new entries and first-floor store fronts of similar finish material. Despite the name of the building, the city's Municipal Court is now in the City Hall.
