George Hosmer School--Detroit MI

Hosmer School is one of the victims of the city's imperiled financial state, the school system's deficit and Detroit's population decline. The structure is another design by Detroit's pre-eminent school architects, Malcomson and Higginbotham. I'm impressed by the stone trim and the roofline gargoyles. From the comments below, what went on inside the building is even more important than the architecture.

 

George Hosmer served as a circuit court judge for twenty-seven years. He also had a branch library (built in 1910-1, but now closed) named after him.
