And it looked so promising from the exterior. What some DIY-ers do to a home is a travesty. I think the home’s downfall began in the 1950s when several ads were taken out in the local newspaper renting out rooms. It appears the boarders in the 195-s and ’60s had a string of bad luck. One woman caught pneumonia, a little girl lost her big toenail when a toy box fell from a top bunk bed, a renter’s car was hit from behind at the railroad tracks, and another renter’s car burst into flames after the dome light caught on fire.
