It's so sad that we don't know what we have till it's gone. If we still had all the buildings we have torn down in the city of Salina, we wouldn't have to work so hard to bring people to downtown. Historical buildings are always a draw. It's too bad all those beautiful buildings are only in pictures now.

Looks like a cool design, like a British school from a Harry Potter movie. Now it's a parking lot? Bummer.

The building was established back in 1903 and it was on the corner of Ash and Santa Fe.

"Established?" Maybe you meant to say "built" or "completed" or "constructed"?

Some of those old red brick buildings cracked and crumbled from the cold and rain and freezing temperatures.

Here's how it worked. First you get rain that saturates the red bricks and mortar. Then at night there's a freeze and the water expands inside the bricks and mortar. The next day the sun comes out and the ice melts, leaving tiny cracks. Repeat this for days and years and eventually the structure begins to crumble and fall apart from the outside.

Loose bricks fall and people complain about getting hit on their heads. They file lawsuits and the building owners decide it's cheaper to tear down and make it a parking lot than to pay millions in lawsuits. That's how it goes in the real world of Kansas.
