Dominique King

Hi Phil-Thanks for stopping by!
The best source I found online about the conversion of some Gaylord buildings to the Swiss style during the late 1960s is a copy of a Gaylord Chamber of Commerce publication celebrating that group's 50th anniversary. There's a 7-page story about it with some great before-and-after photos! http://www.otsego.org/ochs/gaylordstoryupdate/Written%20Accts/CofC%2050th.pdf
