Welcome to Dublin Square, what was once a post office is now an Irish Pub. No, I didn’t get to eat or drink here during my visit. but I did get some photos of the building. I guess to the average person it just looks like a brink building with some trim. To me is SCREAMS WPA era building.
Upon closer inspection you will notice they also covered the corner stone with the decorative wooden corner trim. I did not confirm the corner stone is still there however, speaking from experience this is exactly where it should be.
Can anyone confirm this? Do you have an old picture of the building with the corner stone visible? I’m really curious? I wonder if the pub owners have pictures of the renovation of the building? Would you mind sharing?
As for the mural, that once resided here. It is now located in the Library of Michigan State University. How do I know this?, well my wife looked it up and did some research for me. Since we discovered this, I decided to confirm that it is indeed locate in the library. So there you go, yes, we’ve confirmed it is located in in the Michigan State University Library. Now you can stop wondering. I’ve done the leg work for you. I hope you enjoy this post and please leave a comment below.
Thanks for Stopping by
