documenting Aurora Wells Street Public School, Remembering Change

Wells Street Public School, Remembering Change

Today thought. My thought. It is a simple fact, everything eventually deteriorates. Everything has a life span; and wear and tear. Even perpetual machine cannot exist. Therefore, we will be fooling ourselves if the requirement for heritage preservation was to keep everything original. Change is part of the history. Through change we can definitely connect with the past; from generation to generation. We can all be part of history.

“The only way to make sense out of change
is to plunge into it, move with it,
and join the dance.” ~ Alan Watts

So if you are visiting Aurora Farmers’ Market & Artisan Fair at the Town Park, or the Concert in the Park at the Town Park, or just driving by the former Wells Street Public School, today Wells Street Schoolhouse Lofts, glance at the school. Remember the change. Remember what it used to be. Witness the transformation.
