I am watching the episode with the house and it looks like a jewel. Hmmp hmm hmmpf. Sure hate that another American craftsmanship is going. Historically beautiful :)

Does anyone know the address of this house? Would like to see it before it is torn down. Thanks.

Anyone know why they had to demo it?? It was such a beautiful place that should have been preserved! Very very sad...I am sure someone will build a cookie cutter house there with vinyl siding...where is all the old world charm going??? I would take that house any day over a new one...very sad...
