Welfare Building Since Chelsea was a farm community, it lacked sufficient local factory laborers. Many of the Glazier Stove Company workers commuted from Detroit to Chelsea during the week by train or interurban railroad and lived in local boarding houses. During the week the workers needed something constructive to do after work. This Welfare Building, designed by Claire Allen, was a recreation facility for these workers and featured a swimming pool, billiard room, basketball court, theatre and reading room.
