This Federal style, brick house, built in 1847, has been run down and dilapidated for more than 20 years.  Repeated vacancies and years of serious neglect have led to its current state of disrepair.  This house, so full of history and potential, needs to be saved.  Homes from the same era have been demolished not 8 miles from this location.
