Over 100 years old. It literally had cables stretched across from wall to wall in the main room to hold them up. It had an old wooden phone booth in it that I restored and a ping-pong table. I used to crush the ping-pong balls to keep the kids from hanging out in the building. It was my first city job. We tore it down this week to make way for a new building.

It was a cool building. I had a small b&w t.v. in the office and one of those one cup coffee makers. The breaker box was next to my chair which came in handy when the kids would start playing with the hand dryer, I would reach over and flip the breaker and they would get pissed and leave. The kids would want to play ping-pong but I would have crushed most of the balls. When they did play I spent more time fetching balls from behind the counter (I think they did that on purpose). I used to have color coded bathroom signs because the adult idiots could not figure out which bathroom to go in. (apparently MEN and WOMEN signs were to difficult to figure out). Yeah.... that was a cool building..... Hate to see it go.

There was also a huge fire place made from large stones with garnet chunks in it.

what will happen to the wooden phone booth? that sounds awesome

The wooden phone booth was removed, I think they want to put it in City Hall or put it in the new building. It take common council three meetings to decide things like that.
