NEW CONCLUSION: ED STILES’ WOOD WORKING SHOP AT DRUID HEIGHTS IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES

The results are in, meaning we have seen the final determination of eligibility for the National Register of Historic  Places report for Druid Heights. The final version extended the period of Druid Heights significance through the year 1979, the year that one of Druid Heights significant resident builders and wood workers, Ed Stiles, completed his new wood working shop.

Ed’s shop is one of the most beautiful wood working shops the author of this post has  ever seen, and he has visited a few noteworthy wood shops and has a coffee table book full of other examples to compare it to. Ed was a part of what is often called the Studio Furniture Movement, one of the many threads of American culture that run through Druid Heights.
