I was poking around on line today, taking the first steps toward planning a library road trip for next summer--and I found a Carnegie library, the first built in Wisconsin. It's in Superior, WI, and there are a series of pictures showing just what it looks like today. No whitewashing...this would be a major project. Not for me, but wouldn't it be fun? What would you do with it, if you bought it?
UPDATE Sept 18, 2017
Just took a look at this to see what is happening. The price has been lowered...but the sellers admit that it will take a $million or more to rehab the building. Interested?
