301 S. Main: The Best Corner in Ann Arbor

Published In:
Ann Arbor Observer, March 2014,
March 2014

Author: Grace Shackman

Date: March 2014

Elaine Selo, co-owner of the Selo/Shevel Gallery, calls its longtime location at 301 S. Main "the best corner in Ann Arbor. The building's changes over the past 142 years mirror downtown's evolution. Built in 1871 by German immigrant Henry Binder, it originally housed Binder's third-story saloon as well as thi sown large family. In the twentieth century, when downtown was the country's shopping center, Hutzel's Ladies Apparel sold upscale women's dresses on the corner from 1916 until 1989, when it was purchased by Selo and Cynthia Shevel, her partner in both life and business. Now 301 S. Main has been sold again, and its next use will doubtless reflect downtown's changing character.

Binder immigrated to Ann Arbor in 1852 at age twenty-one. Discovering there was only one small hotel in town, he built another one by the railroad station. It did well, and with the proceeds he began erecting brick commercial buildings downtown.

When the shopping district expanded south from the courthouse square on N. Main, Binder tore down his home to contruct the building that still stands at 301 S. Main. Done in the Commerical Italianate style, with tall windows capped with ornate hoods and brackets at the roofline, it blended well with the other buildings then going up nearby. Binder moved into the second floor with his wife and eleven children. On the taller top floor, he opened a "lager beer and refreshment saloon" that he named Orchestrion Hall after its entertainment system: a sort of giant music box that could imitate the sound of a wind orchestra.

In 1877, recent immigrants Samuel and John Baumgardner opened a grocery store and baker on the street level. "The started in business in a humble way, and scarcely knowing any of the English language," the 1881 History of Washtenaw County, Michigan reported. In 1880 the Baumgardners built a "large and commodious baker" at the back of the building and quickly gained a reputation for being some of the best bakers in the county. Their ads mention "greatly celebrated Vienna Bread" as well as an array of housewares for sale, including crockery, china, and glassware. When the Buamgardners moved to a new location in 1892, the storefront became a showroom for the Ann Arbor Organ company, whose factory was a few blocks away.

By the time the German American Bank moved into 301 S. Main in 1906, Italianate was considered old-fashioned and overly ornate. The bank simplified the brackets, took off the window hoods, squared the windows, and made the pilasters (fake columns" larger and blockier. They added more light by putting in oriel windows on the second floor and Luxfer windows on the first, both in style at the time. (Luxfer windows incorporate prisms to project more light into a building's interior.)

The next tenant, Charles Hutzel, had managed the ladies' ready-to-wear department at Mack's, then the city's major department store, before going into business for himself in 1916. When Charles died in 1943, his son Ray took over, running Hutzel's Ladies Apparel until 1969, when he sold the buiness to George and Mary Dibble.

Connie Osler recalls Hutzel's as the place to go if you wanted something sophisticated to wear for a special occasion. The only other place selling clothes of this caliber was a special department in Goodyear's department store. "The had wonderful personnel attached to beautiful clothing," recalls MOlly Dobson, another Hutzel's shopper. "As soon as you put your foot in the door, you were warmly welcomed." Dobson adds that Hutzel's carreid "so many salable dresses you couldn't decide what to take home."

In the back of the store, in the former bakery, Dobson's sister-in-law, Helen Dobson, ran a gift shop selling silver, crystal, and other items that would appeal to Hutzel's clienetele. "Helen loved beautiful things," recalls Dobson. She traveled all over Europe on buying trips. Dobson remembers that when a friends sent you a gift in the store's lovely yellow and white box, you knew it would be something wonderful.

The building was also the home of the city's first radio station. WPAG, 1050 AM, began broadcasting April 26, 1945 from a studio on the third floor. While selling ads for a Detroit radio station, Ted Baughn had seen that Ann Arbor needed its own radio station, so he joined forces with Paul Greene and his brother Arthur, the founder of Greene's Cleaners. The partners had wanted to start the station in 1941, but the War Production Board refused to grant permission; the equipment they had purchased was sent intstead to North Africa. The call letters reflected the brothers' initials -- though because the station was upstairs from Hutzel's, legendary WPAG sportscaster Bob Ufer liked to claim that they really stood for "women's panties and girdles."

WPAG's programming was locally oriented and included news, music, sports, weather, and farm reports. There was no elevator, so employees got to work by climbing what they called "the stairway to heaven." That was especially challenging for Dick Brunvand, news director from 1966 to 1968, who needed crutches to get around. "Those days I was much more mobile on my crutches than today and would climb those stairs two or three times a day," he recalls. "I would strap a rather heavy recorder to a crutch so I could haul it up and down the stairs."

The second floors, where the Binders once lived, was by then divided into offices -0- mainly dentists and doctors, but also a beauty salon. "I can still vividly recall the smell of the nasty chemicals that they used on women's hair wafting down the hallway as you came up the stairs," says Jim Hddle, WPAG disc jockey and sportscaster from 1978 to 1980. "I think they had been in business a long time, because I never saw anyone under the age of eighty among their clienetele. Us radio folks used to try to run down to Lucky Drugs to grab a quick snack or pop during the netowkr news and were often late getting back into the studio because there always seemed to be a large elderly woman with a walker blocking our path, slowly trying to climb the stairs."

Tom Monaghan bought the station in 1986 and moved it to Domino's Farms, where he renamed it WPZA, for Radio Pizza. It's now WTKA and specializes in sports talk. Part of the Cumulus chain, it's based in the company's office on Victors Way.

Selo and Shevel met in 1965 when both were social work students in the U-M master's program. Shevel, who came froma retail backgrounds, openined Middle Earth in 1967, originally in a small space upstaris on E. Liberty. Selo went on to earn her PhD in 1976 and then worked for the Institute of Labor and INdustrial RElations, studying law enforcement reactions to violence.

The couple had always traveled and had picked up a lot of great objects, so they added a gallery to Middle Earth. But students did not make good gallery customers, so when the funding for Selo's project ran out in 1982, they opened Selo/Shevel on Main St., a few doors south of its present location. Shevel continued managing Middle Earth, while Selo ran the gallery.

Selo, who had never studied business or even taken much interest in it, describes the opening as a “trial by fire,” adding “I didn’t know how hard it would be.` If I had, I would have been scared.” To choose merchandise, she says, “I saw what people were buying. I talked to customers, and I saw what worked...Ann Arbor people were supportive of this kind of downtown.”

When it’s suggested that she had a great eye, Selo replies, “I was lucky in my taste.” Her father studied medicine in Berlin, but when the Nazis wouldn’t give him a license because he was Jewish, he emigrated I to the United States and practiced medicine in Iowa. Her parents enjoyed going to estate sales on weekends, and she grew up in a home furnished with oriental rugs and Biedermeier furniture.

The store was originally devoted to imports that Selo and Shevel brought back from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. “We’d look around and see what we liked,” Selo says. “We always found great stuff. We had no system.” They gradually added contemporary American crafts. Many stores specialize in one or the other, but Selo thinks they complemented each other and gave customers a wider range of choice.

In 1989, when Selo and Shevel bought the building at 301 S. Main from the Dibbles, it was in bad shape from many years of wear. The upstairs, Selo says, was “a total shambles.” The roof needed replacing, and the windows on the second and third floor were about to fall out; on the first floor, windows had been blocked to give the dressing rooms privacy. -

The Hutzel’s sign, which projected from the building to be visible from both streets, didn’t meet the requirements of the city’s sign ordinance, but, with support from the Historic District Commission, the new owners were given a variance to I keep it.

After more than twenty years on the corner, last fall Selo and Shevel sold their building to Reza Rahmani, an eye doctor with three locations in suburban Detroit, who has been buying Ann Arbor real estate in recent years. He did not respond to recent attempts to reach him, but in an earlier interview he said he was going to renovate the upstairs office space and put in an elevator but do nothing to
change the exterior. Selo has faith, saying, “Something very good will come in after us. I’m not worried, because the buyer realizes the importance and significance of this building.”

The store has to be empty by the end of March. As the closing date gets nearer, customers have been telling Selo about items they bought from her that they still cherish and how sorry they are that the store is closing."

Selo admits the feeling is mutual, and that she will miss her customers. So what’s next for the couple? “It’ll be a different life,” she says. “Yes, we’ll travel, but we’ve always traveled. I’d like to take classes, make soup, and sit by the fireplace and read.”

Yamasaki's Chelsea High School

Published In:
Community Observer, Winter 2013,
Winter 2013

Author: Grace Shackman

Date: Winter 2013

What was a star architect thinking?

When I worked at the Chelsea Standard in the 1980s, I often covered events at Chelsea High School. It was not a single building, but a campus of one-story structures that students scurried between in all types of weather. I was told it was designed by a California architect who didn't understand Michigan winters.

Imagine my surprise to learn, years later, that it was actually the work of Minoru Yamasaki, the famous Modern architect who went on to design the World Trade Center. Born in Seattle, Yamasaki moved to Detroit in 1945, so by the time he designed the school in 1956, he had been through eleven Michigan winters.

But Yamasaki evidently wasn't thinking about winter. In a 1957 interview with Architectural Forum, he explained: "We hit upon the idea that if the buildings could each express their individual character that we might be able to depict the quality of a small town. The auditroium, gym, homemaking area would symbolically and literally be the town center."

Yamasaki was hardly the first architect to ignore practical problems. A janitor once broke a leg tending an elevated planter at Alden Dow's Ann ARbor library. Frank Lloyd Wright's eccentricities - leaking roofs, tiny kitchens - are well know. But Chelsea needed a new school - the high school population, then fewer than 400 students, was predicted to double in ten years.

Local architect Art Lindauer encouraged an innovative design. "I went to the school board and said, 'Every school looks like each other,'" recalls Lindauer, the father of Chelsea mayor Jason Lindauer. "'Why don't you try an architect with a different approach?'" Asked for suggestions, he mentioned Yamasaki, who at the time was activiely pursuing school work. After interviewing a dozen architects, a citizen's committee recommended hiring Yamaski, Leinweber, and Associates.

Peter Flintoff, whose father, Howard Flintoff, was secretary of the school board, recalls hearing that they felt lucky to get Yamasaki. Alyce Riemenschneider remembers that her parents and their friends were also excited to have someone so famous design their school.

People raised questions about the campus layout, but according to the Standard, school board members argued that the design would "provide the best building program at the most economical cost." Outside walkways would to-ceiling windows [it] was much nicer than the traditional string of hallway lockers," recalls Carol Cameron Lauhon, who also graduated in 1961. Covered walkways with brightly colored bubbles at building entrances served to unify the campus and afford some shelter as students passed between classes.

The main building, which Yamasaki called the "Town Center," contained the cafeteria, library, gym, and auditorium. Circling the auditorium were six classrooms used for English and social sciences. A Central atrium was open to the sky and filled with planst and bushes. "For the prom, the junior class would decorate the atrium with flowers and green plastic truf and furnish it with a wooden bridge over a small pond. Couples posed on the bridge for their prom photos. Very romantic!" recalls Lauhon.

June Winans, who taught earth science and geology, shared the science building with biology, chemistry, and physics teachers. Shop classes, the Standard explained, also had their own building so that "noises made by operating equipment or hammering and sawing will not disturb other classes."

The home economics and art building had a pitched roof to look more like a house. Riemenschneider recalls that the desks converted into cutting tables and that sewing machines were hidden in veneer cabinets. The kitchen had the newest stoves and refrigerators and an island, a novelty at the time. After preparing a meal, the students moved into a dining room and a living room.

At an open house, the Standard reported, "most people were impressed not only with the beautiful appearance of the new campus type high school but also with its very evident functional features."

The students who made the transition still have fond memories of Yamaski's school. "The exterior walkways between buildings felt less confining than the old school's intererior hallways and multiple stairwells, some of them narrow and windowless," says Lauhon.

"I was happy to walk outside," says Brown, adding: "The teachers aid it woke the students up."

"The breath of fresh air did them good," says Bill Chandler, the school's work-study coordinator. Sam Vogel, social studies teacher and later assistant principal, recalls that "the covered walkways developed leaks, but, unless it was pouring, it wasn't a problem."

Parents were less thrilled. Some thought it was ridiculous that their children had to go outside. One recalls her daughter tell her, "mom, we don't need decent clothes to go to school. We just need a good coat."

As enrollment grew, an auto mechanics garage was added, and a new bulding facing Washington for social studies. The cafeteria was enlarged by moving the library into another building.

But when the locker room got overcrowded and rowdy-the staff dubbed it "God's Little Acre" - there was no way to expand it. Eventually the lockers were movied into the "town center," but "then the halls were too crowded," Vogel recalls. The atrium also became a problem, with maintenance issues and heat loss through the single-pane glass the surrounded it.

Yamasaki's futuristic vision never caught on: the present Chelsea High, built in 1998, is again a single building. His campus, however, is still in use - its buildings now house the Chelsea Senior Center, school board offices, Chelsea Community Education and Recreation, and Chelsea Early Education. The roofs and bubble entrances are gone, the original large windows have been replaced by smaller ones, and the atrium has been filled in to create a windowless meeting room.

But students who went there still have fond memories of their school. "It seems to me that the Yamasaki design was a new way of imagining spaces for student life," says Lauhon. "The school was a pleasant place to be. My sense is that this is what Yamasaki had in mind."
