OHD Notes
House had a fire (Aug 2009.) I found this guy who took some pics and video of the fire in progress. And more photos after the fire. I've also seen this referenced as the J.S. Webber House.

    Oh, my heart is broken seeing all the fire damage. I hope someone buys this nice place and restores it back to period details.

    We drove past this house last week as we were looking at houses in MA, CT and NY. We are moving to the area. House is a tear down. Not much left. Surprised the town has not made them take it down.

      That’s so sad, Robb. I hope someone can salvage what’s left of the place. There are so many beautiful architectural details which could go into another home.

    August 2015 street view.

    Looks like the whole neighborhood is waiting to be torn down. Nearly all of the buildings on this street are boarded up save one or two houses. Such a shame, once this was a beautiful neighborhood.

    I’m going to chime in and say this really breaks my heart, too. What a gorgeous home it must have been…

    There was a demolition bid in Feb. for this home. The house next door burned not long ago also. Won’t be long before this is gone.
