I drove by today and saw them demolishing the old house at the corner of Fifth and Curry, behind the Ormsby House.
This house has been abandoned for a long time, but looked sound enough that it could have been renovated. Not worth it, I guess. Now I wonder if they’re building something new, or if the lot will just stay empty for a while?
Update!: Courtesy of Google Street View, here’s a before picture of the house. I looked through my archives but I couldn’t find one. All that time photographing the Ormsby House, and I never once swung my camera around the other way.
