Save this old house. My heart is wrenched by what has happened to this poor house. Apparently someone had the foresight to save the house and move it to its present location in 2013. I have included photos at the bottom of the post where you will see that the exterior was in much better condition then. No overgrowth or broken windows. After 2013, someone started to paint the pretty-in-pink house green, gave up less than half way through, and seemingly gave up on the house completely.
The interior is beautiful, even in its neglect and decay. It must be from my days investigating abandoned houses, but I am always drawn to crumbling walls and peeling paint. I yearn to take care of it as I would a sick child. I hope someone in closer proximity to the property feels the same about this one.


Save this old house. Single family home built in 1900 and located on corner lot. This is a fixer upper with a lot of character and potential. The home includes beautiful wood staircase and wood trim throughout, along with an etched glass window. The home was moved to this location, and is not currently hooked up to water or sewage. NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ACCIDENTS.

Photos below from 2013 soon after the house was moved to its present location.
