Saying Goodbye To Carey Hall

Filed under: Workday Wind Down |

Most nights I go walking around Marquette, because I figure I should enjoy being able to walk around without freezing to death.  On Friday night I went up through Northern Michigan University’s campus and came across the destruction of Carey Hall.

Part of what’s left of Carey Hall.

It was really strange to see the building gone, and a bit sad.  I really liked the building and it had this charm to me.  I guess I like older buildings for the character and the reminder of past times.  It’s just a reminder of changing times I guess.  Since then I’ve been walking by at night to just look at the pile of rubble.

I know up next is Jamrich Hall once the new building is built, which means I’ll have to go walking in there before it’s gone to in a few years.
