    I used to lived in Milton when I was a little, little girl. It may have been closer to Pace, but it was in the general vicinity. I remember it as a sunny, quiet, pleasant place.

    This house could be absolutely adorable with a little effort. I love the entire feel of it. It’s welcoming.

    Take a trip through Milton with the street view. You jump from 2013 to 2016 at random times near the 2013 roadwork. I’m an overgrown kid, so I spent a few minutes time traveling.

      I do that all the time, time travel that is. Because I am housebound I use Google to go all over the world and see things that I will never get to see if not for this device.

        While that may have not been Google’s intention when they started Street View, I believe they have realized what a blessing it has been to people for the exactly the reason you stated.

        Have you been to Disney World yet? Take a trip through the Magic Kingdom.

    This was the home for a time of George L. Abbott, who moved in after 1910 with his wife Leila Fisher and their daughter Isabelle. The lot back then was the entire block, and George built a building behind the house facing Canal St. for his business – the concrete pad it sat on is still there. Abbott’s Bottling Works made soda pop for just a few years before George died young in 1922, and the bottles now are collectibles:

    Leila Abbott stayed in the home for many years, and taught at a nursery school. She shared the house with Isabelle and her husband William A. Bonifay, a judge and state legislator, who owned the home until their passing about 30 years ago.

    That is an adorable house. I hope my husband doesn’t see it because I do not want to move to Florida.

      LOL!! I lived 5 blocks from the beach in Lake Worth. That was nice. Breeze everyday and no mosquitos!!But 10 miles inland is so different. I may have to move back due to COPD. Salt air is better for it, but I am fighting it. Michigan is in my heart and I want to live out my life at home.

    I too lived in Milton back in the early 1990’s and was the financial secretary for FBC Milton just down the street from this house. I knew a Bubba Fischer and wonder if there is a connection to this house…. Milton is a lovely little town and if I didn’t want to live in the heat and humidity I’d go take a look at this one…I once heard someone say about Milton weather “Ah just like I like it, hot, humid, and knatty!” It looks like someone started to work on this house and then stopped for some reason, it has alot of potential!

    I love the tall windows in the living room, but then wondered how many times alligators have meandered into homes through them. That would be a surprise!

    I did go take a look a her this morning. Wonderful house on a good sized lot. The floor length windows are very nice, although they do have some broken panes. The realtor told me there had been squatters living in the house for awhile. The floors are soft and spongy in areas, and some spots has just rotted all the way thru. In the 11th picture, on the left, under the window, it has lots of termite damage. Some plumbing is still galvanized pipe, and looks like the electric will have to be done also. We saw material covered wire running to a splice done with wire nuts. I didn’t go upstairs, from what I saw, and what she told me she knew, was going to be out of my reach. Especially the termite damage, afraid its probably extensive. The old girl does have a straight roof line, and has some beautiful features, the windows, pocket doors, and loved the porch and property. I truly hope someone will save her and not tear her down for office space or downtown parking. I’ll be following to see what happens.
