The Metro Historical Commission installed a commemorative plaque recently at historic Fehr School. I spent a lot of time and energy over the years trying to help leverage a preservation overlay to protect this living Civil Rights museum from demolition or substantial alteration, including using this blog for community awareness.
Seeing the new plaque for the first time today is like a nice little ribbon on the gift of preservation we had already enjoyed for some time. The school is a source of pride for this neighborhood.
