Ditto on the school. Kathleen kept saying how run-down it looked, which is really sad, because it is an architectural gem.

In contrast, though, the grounds were quite nicely transformed. The thing about the new landscaping that Chip B. and I found funny were the plaques commemorating those who had donated money for the landscaping – in all seriousness they looked like grave markers! Chip asked me (rather tongue-in-cheek) if I, too, wanted to be buried on the BRHS grounds. Uh, no thanks.
