House seems to be lived in

Just some old photos of the stages of the changes in this house.  It was lifted up; additions were added; the porch has classic lines.   It still fits in the neighborhood.

This home on Progress St. is in the Historic District.  Its owner was my friend and I had the opportunity to visit it many times.  Those were the good times.

Social House

A few months ago, this very old building was white when it was a framing business on Main St.  The building is being restored to the era when it was built.  I think this color may be what it was when it was a home.  However, it will be a restaurant.
