I wanted to post this article from the National Trust for Historic Preservation in honor of the Crossman Block, a row of early 1900's commercial buildings in downtown Garland that have defined the east side of the city square since their construction. On March 21, the Garland City Council voted 7-1 to demolish the buildings in favor of more downtown open space. With that decision goes the $428,500 paid to purchase the building 3 years ago, the $88,000 cost for demolition and disposal, and about $517,000 in possible historic tax credits. All into the landfill. About $1 million total value with more than half in taxpayer cash.
