Greenfield's city building was
built during the year of America's first centennial celebration,
1876. Almost a hundred years later it has been reconstructed as a
testament to the wisdom of restoration rather than demolition.
Thanks to the individual efforts of many Greenfielders and to the
citizens of Greenfield who voted to dig into their collective
pockets to fund the project, this major landmark is again a work
of architectural beauty. In November the magazine "Cities
& Villages" marked the community's achievement with a
two-page cover story about the restoration project. The article
was written by Cindi Pearce and designed by Kris Cross. The photo
was by Cheryl Collier. Information was also taken from F.R. Harris' A
Green Countrie Towne and Elsie Johnson Ayres' Hills of
Highland and Ron Coffey's website. Click
