Loveland Municipal Building

Day nine in my “Leaving Loveland” challenge.

This is the view from my living room window. The building on the left was originally Washington School, built in 1905, which is quite old for this town. It now, along with the addition built onto it, houses city administration offices. It’s where I go to drop off my ballot for elections, or pay my utility bill (okay, actually I pay my bill online but I could drop my payment there if I so desired).

That huge evergreen used to get ceremonially lit for Christmas every year, but now another fake tree gets constructed and then lit up on the main drag, Fourth Street, in front of the Rialto Theater, a few blocks away from here.

It’s a bit hard to see, but there’s a sculpture to the right of the evergreen. Loveland is ga-ga for sculpture – especially bronze sculpture – but this piece is a stone sculpture from Zimbabwe, like many of the pieces at Chapungu Sculpture Park, which is on the east side of Loveland.
