Snake Handle: Which door handle in the building takes the shape of a snake?
Mosaic Mural: Under the direction of artist Leann Wooten, our mosaic was made by neighborhood children, teens and adults. See if you can find the three moons depicted in the mural, symbolizing our three branches.
Exposed wooden wall: Find the exposed wooden wall from the original exterior of the tavern. Look for where a former window was filled in, and the name of a lumber company!
Solatubes: Solatube skylight fixtures help us use natural light and dispense it throughout the facility. See if you can find these innovative light fixtures throughout the building (don’t forget to check the roof!).
Square water containers: Find the post-industrial bulk containers that help us collect rainwater from our roof.
