Dayton Trip Yields Preservation Insights - Cont'd
The trip provided the opportunity for two days in Dayton, including a visit to the city's impressive Art Institute http://www.daytonartinstitute.org/, housed in a wonderful Classical Revival building across the river from downtown, a brief look at the city's famed Arcade, a stroll down one of the city's rehabilitated neighborhoods on the near east side and walks throughout the downtown. Dayton has some wonderful early 20th century terra cotta buildings plus some interesting late 19th century residences that still survive downtown. Howard Daniel's magnificent 1850 Greek Revival courthouse was closed during our visit. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montgomery_County_Historical_Society
A side trip to Kettering included a tour of their Early Modern city hall, an interesting landmark.
