Save This Old House ~ c.1923 Fixer Upper Johnstown PA ~ SOLD

803 Park Ave, Johnstown, PA 15902   $23,999 Sold for $20,000


Save this old house. I was attracted to this fixer upper because it looks exactly like the first house we owned in Bayshore, NY. Our featured home today is located in the Moxham Historic District of Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
The Moxham Historic District includes 330 contributing and 34 non-contributing structures, including architecturally pleasing homes, old carriage houses and horse barns, vernacular houses and church buildings mainly dating from 1890-1930. The neighborhood was built in a relatively flood-free area, and the infamous 1889 Johnstown Flood resulted in little physical damage to properties in Moxham.
Unfortunately, the historic neighborhood has gained a reputation for crime in recent years. When we purchased our Bayshore house in the 1980s, the surrounding neighborhood was in decline. Today, however, the houses in the now low-crime Bayshore neighborhood are well-maintained and sell between $300K – $400K. It only takes a few individuals to start a change.
