Excerpt from an email received by OldLouisville.com in Oct: 2005:

The current apartment/condo building has an iron gate on one side, not now a gate to anything, but a kind of monument to the old days, with “Manly Gymnasium” inscribed across the top. I don’t remember the gate, though it’s likely I passed through it going into the gym for assemblies. Though there are signs that forbid trespassing, I went up the steps of the building and peered inside. Sadly, the remnant of grandeur that I remember the building having when I taught there, a very grand sweeping staircase in front of the doors, is now gone.
