Breaking news this week was the announcement of the celebration and ribbon-cutting for the Seville Community Resurce Center slated for Sunday May 22 at 1 PM.

The building, designed by nationally recognized architect Wm. J. Carpenter AIA in the 1920s, is a rare surviving example of a vernacular frame school house in a rural setting.  As such, it has been found eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

After serving the community as a school resource for many years it is now planned that the facility will continue to be the hub of the community, serving as a community meeting and resource center.

In condensing the Guide to the Architectural Projects of Wm. J. Carpenter, AIA for the Period 1888-1930 in order to include it in this Blog I inadvertantly omitted some important information, namely, the acknowledgment of those who helped me in my research and a listing of the resources.

I apologize to all concerned and have today published the pertinent information as an addition at the end of “A Listing of the Architectural Projects of Wm. J. Carpenter AIA” on the Architecture page.
