The family that sold their house to my parents in 1960 (which is now my B&B) next bought the house that is featured in this article in the local paper.  Do try to read the article, but don't miss the video.  Should be accessible for 2 weeks.

All the guests at the B&B this weekend were "back home" for their 50th high school reunion.  One of the women who was here opened the Sunday paper to see pictures of the house and much to my surprise she had also been a previous owner.

People who "know" the house didn't think it could be repaired, but apparently the new owner has been able to do it.

Wonderful! A real art deco work of art! I'm so happy they saved it, and happy I'm not the one writing the checks to do it!
