Back in November I wrote about the sad state of disrepair of one of our grand old houses in the neighborhood. The house, which was built in 1885 and is located on the corner of N Olive and Nolan, had been literally falling apart for several years.
Well, finally some progress! A couple weeks ago clean up and repair of the house was started. There is larger dumpster in the backyard that is being fill and the damaged second story balcony on the house has been taken down. A crew of workers has been busy on making the structure safer and hopefully, the work will lead to a full restoration of the house.
