  • I am interested in what appears to be a radio antenna in the 1938 photo. What do you know about the occupant of the home then. Is it possible he was a ham radio operator?

  • What a terrific article this is. I would love to see someone buy it and fix it up. It would be sad to see a parking lot there. It is a beautiful house that fits perfectly uptown. Please, lets save this house.

  • I think the family members should have thought about preserving the house long before now. The building is about to fall down. I would also like to see historic property saved, but after so long without any maintenance, what do they expect?

    It would cost $250,000.00 easily to bring that house up to code. I would say they are lucky the city is not taking a closer look at the hazards on the site.

  • I think maybe I lived almost across the street from this house about 50 years ago. My address was 306 W.Main,if memory is correct... Does anybody know if the property was once the residence/office of Doctor McDonald in the 50's-60's? It appears very familiar; was one of the most elegant homes in town at that time. I hope somebody or group will restore it. Would like to hear update on this article.
