Notes
Survey number HABS MI-392-A
Significance: Ward 11 is an example of the standardized ward plans used during the period of 1923 to the 1940's, inspired by the Veterans Bureau, to improve care for the nation's and Michigan's veterans. / Ward 11 was designed to reflect Colonial Revival influences, and is constructed of brick laid in Flemish bond. The building presents a simple massed or H-plan, and is crowned by a hipped roof. Rusticated brick and masonry water tables merge with brick corner quoins linked by terra cotta belt courses, while upper walls terminate in classically inspired eave and cornice treatments. Simple window treatment includes terra cotta keystones and sills which originally enframed multiple lighted double-hung sashes.
