Episode 84 - A Building With Many Stories

March 21, 2017

Akron’s historic buildings contain so many interesting stories of the city's past and its people, says Lauren Burge, who works as a historic architect. The firm Chambers, Murphy & Burge is responsible for restoring a number of important buildings in Akron, including its headquarters the Hermes Building. She talks about the “Akron Style,” which was known all over the country and can still be found in some of our churches, along with working in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, along with her most recent effort, a wine company called Bottle to Glass that she and her husband operate (headquartered at another historic building in downtown Akron).
