Regarding Henika Ladies Library. A narrative description of the building from Michigan Historic Sites Online:
The Henika Library is a one-story structure of carefully cut and dressed local fieldstone. Its main section has a high, gable roof, with the gable facing the street, and projecting from one side is a semicircular-end porch with fieldstone piers, now glassed in and incorporated into the library. The structure's styling is an eclectic combination of Richardsonian Romanesque and Colonial-inspired details. A brick rear wing was added in 1968.
