Hospital, originally uploaded by mainegal.

Earlier this year, the city transferred operating authority for Fort Wayne from the Detroit Historical Museum to the City’s Recreation Department. Will Fort Wayne be open for tours this year?

My dad and I toured Fort Wayne last summer and were deeply saddened by the state of many of the buildings. The photo is of the hospital which may be well beyond saving as the roof is caved in and trees are growing in and around it. Fort Wayne has a collection of beautiful buildings and is an important part of our history.

If you can get a tour, you really should go. The tour guides are friendly and quite knowledgeable.

You may even get lucky and find the Tuskegee Airmen Museum open, like we did.

    As the years go by, through experience with officals related to the city of detroit (police, politicians, ect…), I am no longer shocked but rather just increasingly sickened by the hardened hatred and neglect the officials show toward Detroit. They have done work on fixing the facade, but have let the important part of the history, the inner parts, to rot and decay like the moral fiber they claim to carry. The result is what we see at Fort Wayne as a microcosm of this attitude.
