The Second Block of Pine Street

By Joe StarkeyThe Grace Museum is sponsoring monthly talks about downtown Abilene. Sometimes you get to go inside the buildings. Others you have to wonder what the inside story is/was. This month we walked the second block of Pine. Most people thought the guide lost his way or was taking a shortcut or?? But then he showed us how the back of the buildings still told the story of the original 2nd block of Pine Street. Everything since and what is to come is based on the structures as they were first built. You even see where there was a passage between two buildings even though one is now a parking lot. Pay attention downtown and you will find many interesting things to do.
