OLDEST KNKOWN STRUCTURE: The old county jail at 627 N. Main St., was erected in 1837, the year the University was established in Ann Arbor. Originally a natural red-brick color, the building has been whitewashed many times over by intervening lessees. It has seen service as a gasoline station, junk shop, apartment house, warehouse and church, among other things. Now it's scheduled for razing and has been picked as the site for the new Dunbar Community Center. Removal is slated within 90 days.
