Of course there’s Richard Meier’s Atheneum, one of the AIA’s top 150 buildings, there’s Philip Johnson’s Roofless Church, but one of the most vital buildings in town, the place where life is lived, decisions get made, and coffee gets drunk, is Laura Hudgins’ Church Street Coffee House. Then there are the historic buildings and the lovely Victorian downtown. The brick building with the clock tower is the old Ribeyre Gymnasium, which was in the film A League of Their Own, which was shot here and in Evansville. The old German clapboard church is a block away from us, and someone lives in it. The building with the arched window has the Maxmilian-Bodmer collection on the ground floors and our friend architect Ben Nicholson’s office upstairs. And wandering around always brings pleasant surprises. Of course it didn’t occur to me—until after I originally posted this—that the cute little building about 9 down (out back of the historic Fauntleroy House) was actually a 3-hole privy.
