    I’ll be there! Not sure if you have this building on your list for discussion, but I’m curious as to the history of the small, orange-red quonset building between the Laborers’ Hall and Amoth Court. How old’s this little building? Who were the original owners? How has it been used over the years?

    Looking forward to the meeting!
