    Wirt Rowland has been discussed quite often on here. One design that is usually attributed to him is Lewis Maire school in Grosse Pointe. Working on other research I came across a school history which has O'Dell & Diehl as the architects of the building. The research was done by the Grosse Pointe Historical Society. Was Rowland employed by O'Dell & Diehl at the time? Or is the GPHS' research wrong?

    That's insane. I don't understand why they need to do that much tearing down. St. John has been closed for a few years, but Holy Cross is still an active parish.
