Bricks From Above

The Olson (Olsen) building has been on the corner of Main since 1908; this iconic brick structure has had many purposes over the years, from a hotel to apartments, along with various storefronts and restaurants. The upstairs of the building is currently vacant.

Often we drive by the old construction with nary a thought, but recently the Olson building called for attention by dropping a few of her bricks on the sidewalk. No one was hurt in the incident, but the canopy below was torn, and the area roped off by the responding fire department. We reached out to the building owner, who declined to comment, therefore there is no confirmation on the cause or extent of the damage.
