Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial, Put-in-Bay "A separate contract was awarded by the Inter-State Board to John H. Feick, a local contractor from Sandusky, Ohio. Feick was selected to clear the construction site, which was actually a wooded swamp. On 24 June 1912 the first spade of earth was turned, and the 75 year dream was about to be fulfilled." - http://www.nps.gov/pevi/HTML/monument.html

Oberlin College:

Rice Hall, "Constructed in the years 1909 and 1910 at a cost of $110,000, the building was named in commemoration of the life services of Professor Fenleon B. Rice and Mrs. Helen M. Rice. Professor Rice was for thirty-one years the Director of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and to the work of Professor and Mrs. Rice is due in large measure to the early development, the rapid growth, and the high artistic ideals of the Conservatory department. Rice Memorial Hall when it was a conservatory, was a four-story structure containing six large lecture rooms, numerous studios, and over a hundred practice rooms. It was used exclusively for the work of the Conservatory. The architect of the building was Mr. A.B. Jennings of New York, and it was erected by Mr. George Feick of Sandusky."

"Carnegie Library was the main campus library. Everyone had to come here at some point. The first floor contained rooms for special classes of readers [one was the reserve room where books that a whole class had to read were on reserve (could not be taken out of the library); another was the local town library with general fiction], and a cloak room. A large reading room, 132 by 48 feet, extended across the entire second floor front of the building, which, with the adjoining alcove, accommodated two hundred and eighty-four readers. Also on the second floor were offices, a biographical library room, the cataloguing room. This was where you went to look up stuff in the card catalog or on microfiche. The third and fourth floor housed 15 seminar rooms. Adjoining all floors were the stacks, six stories in height. This was where you did your research or went to study especially if the main reading room was too noisy for you. Carnegie Library was the gift of Mr. Andrew Carnegie, of New York. The total cost in 1907-1908 was $155,600 of which amount Mr. Carnegie furnished $150,000. The building is 135 by 110 feet and it is made of Amherst sandstone. (Amherst is a nearby community up by Lake Erie.) Messers, Patton and Miller, of Chicago, were the architects, and the building was constructed by Mr. George Feick, of Sandusky, Ohio. The building was dedicated June 23, 1908, in connection with the celebration of the Seventy-fifty Anniversary of the College."

"The Finney Memorial Chapel was erected and given to Oberlin College by Frederic Norton Finney, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, second son of Rev. Charles G. Finney, as a monument to his father. It stands upon the site where Mr. Finney's residence stood for over seventy years. The Chapel will seat 2000 people and affords standing room for 1000 more on special occasions, and it is to be used for all purposes to which a public auditorium is adapted. The architect who designed the Chapel and supervised its construction was Mr. Cass Gilbert, of New York City. The builder was George Feick, of Sandusky, Ohio."

Sandusky -

Lutheran School -



Adam, after working several years as a carpenter with his brother George, established the firm Adam Feick & Brother in 1872. The business was quite successful and was responsible for several notable buildings, including Zion Lutheran Church, the Erie County Jail, buildings at the Ohio Soldiers' and Sailors' Home, and the Wyoming State Capitol.

Wyoming - State Capitol Building

and the State Capitol at Cheyenne, Wyoming (built in 1886 for $389,569.13) 

"The Dome of the capitol is real gold leaf. The 24-carat gold leaf dome is visible from all roads entering the city. it has been gilded six times, the first in 1900 and the last in 1988. A highly skilled person is needed to put this lead in place because, if touched by fingers in handling, it will disintegrate. The peak of the dome is 146 feet high, and the base is 50 feet in diameter" - http://ai.state.wy.us/capitoltour/Hsitory/index.htm.)
