Hard To Believe…

If there is one thing I never thought I would see, it is the renovation/restoartion of the Ransom Gillis House at 205 Alfred. Built in 1876, it was designed by architects Brush & Mason.

Here are some recent pictures of the home.

It is just amazing to see the progress in Brush Park. While there are still some losses, this is a big victory. I can’t wait to watch this one progress.

There is an interesting website with some history here.

    You were asking where the street signs went…

    John Kossik’s photos at 63alfred.com show that they were replaced with new ones at the SE corner.

    Don’t count it a victory yet. It still stands today (whenever the latest Google Maps Image was taken, I’d guess 2010) in the exact same state it was in the last picture.
