Bonus Photo: Rockwell’s chalkboard floor

Yesterday, I visited Rockwell Retirement Center, which is located in the former middle and high school building on Turbot Avenue in Milton.

The owners are committed to reducing their environmental impact, and that included reusing building materials from the school when the center opened in 1989.

Here’s the proof:

The black tiles are made from the chalkboards used in the former building! They were polished and coated to make them more durable.

That is some cool design and a nice homage to the building’s past.
