Historic Buildings: Fresh Starts

  • Aired: 01/22/2010
  • 29:05
  • Rating: NR
Passages of time often sadly result in the decay and loss of historic structures. Many older buildings are destroyed by fire, neglect, or simply become impractical to repair or utilize as a result of age. However, often times these area and architectural landmarks are acquired by individuals who remodel them for new uses.
