Title

Ann Arbor Railway and Depot, Howell, Michigan - 1984

Description

This photograph is of the Ann Arbor Railway and Depot, located at the intersection of North Walnut and Wetmore Streets, Howell, Michigan, and was taken as part of documentation for the R/UDAT Study, 1984.  In this view, looking west,  from the Michigan Avenue Bridge is the depot, train tracks, Holkins lumber, and part of a parking lot.

In 1983, the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce applied for a R/UDAT (Regional/Urban Design Assistance Team) study, an American Institute of Architects program that brought a team of professionals to the city for a four-day period to study Howell's downtown, its ability to compete for regional shopping, and to make recommendations for improvements to re-vitalize the city.  The team, in 1984, during the study took photographs, interviewed people, held forums, and in the end provided an outline of strategies.
