Question Corner June 2013
by Tim Athan
Q: For several months I have walked past the small park at the corner of Liberty and Division. There are two empty stanchions standing in one corner of this pleasant area.
There used to be a very nicely engraved glass marker, with displays of Ann Arbor history, mounted between the stanchions. The marker has been gone for several months, and I miss it.
What happened to it? Was it vandalized by the Occupy protest ruckus? Or taken in for the winter? Or what?
A: The glass marker at Liberty and Division was smashed in late summer or early fall last year, after the Occupy movement had left the park. Another marker, at the county building, was also vandalized. Both were replaced at the end of April. Like the entire Historical Street Exhibit program, the repairs were funded through the generosity of private donors.
