Waiting for the ball...

Abandoned Victorian house near where I live. Soon to be gone.

Oh, that is a shame. I think it was the roof line and the turret that did it for me. Is there any local history about it?

I love turrets.

I don’t know much about the history. Here’s a link to a short blurb about the house - http://matawanhistoricalsociety.org/david-ryer-house/. Now windows are boarded up in places, paint is peeling, etc. supposedly the inside is in bad shape too.

I've always wanted on, but it's not conducive to apartment dwelling.

Thank you so much. I tried to find out more, but couldn't. What a shame to have lost it.

So in a strange coincidence, this just popped up in my Facebook feed. It is public so if you are on Facebook I think you should be able to read it. It’s an old newspaper article about the house. https://www.facebook.com/groups/175009409239133/?fref=nf

Here's a short blurb about the house from when it was on the market. Several people have tried to bring her back to life but failed.http://www.oldhouses.com/2998

Oh, what a lovely place. What a shame that it has fallen into ruins!
