OHU50K NOTES ~ PLEASE SAVE THIS OLD HOUSE

Okay, who is the bonehead who disembodied this once gorgeous c.1870 brick Italianate in Council Bluffs, Iowa? I found a Youtube video of the home, known as the A.B. Walker House, when it was on the market in June of 2015 and still had soul. I had to call my husband in to watch it to verify it was the same house! We both were so dismayed at viewing the degradation that occurred in just four years to this fine architectural specimen.

You have to see for yourself. I’ve included just a couple of before and after photos below, but here is the video.
