In the last 25 years, the Huffman Historic District has progressed from being partially rundown to one of the truly great historic neighborhoods in the Dayton area. Mike Osgood was one of the first people to see the neighborhood’s potential, and he opened many others to the same vision. Art Nabinger was one of the early “move-ins” in the newly expanding preservation effort and has since become one of the leaders.  He deserves much credit for revitalization efforts in the neighborhood in recent years and for the present quality of the neighborhood. Mike and Art are two truly unsung heroes in Dayton, and it is through their and other’s passion and tireless dedication that Dayton will continue and thrive.

    These two hard-working, energetic and committed men made a huge mark of Huffman Historic District and in the city at large. Sadly, they died just 10 weeks apart in the spring of 2014. They truly were unsung heroes, always focusing on their goals. They were and are an inspiration to others who want to impact Dayton neighborhoods, often fighting upstream to make positive change.
