Not much history of the Burnham Block especially the duplexes. Didn't help that our docent didn't have her own book which made finding the appropriate reference materials difficult. Love the effort being put into restoring them however.

Our docent, David, was excellent- informative, professional, and delightful. He created an excellent experience for our group by communicating his extensive knowledge with passion. We lived it!
