Jon Swarthout finds a home for TrICA
By Amy Atkins
Stepping inside of the stone edifice that has stood in a residential neighborhood at the corner of 14th and Eastman since 1907 is a little like stepping into a broken time machine. Stained glass windows, exposed wooden timbers and a sky-high ceiling immediately engender a sense of the building's original purpose as a Methodist church. It's easy to imagine parishioners finding solace and community within those walls a century ago. Now, many of those same windows are covered on the outside with corrugated plastic, allowing only dim, filtered light through; some of the timbers are so rotted, one slight shove and they disintegrate into a musty brown dust; and signatures scrawled in Sharpie run up and down the support beams.
