When I took a turn through Coudersport, Pa. there was a derelict house right on Main Street that was such an arresting sight, I had to go around the block again so that I could stop and snap a photo.
After a little look-see online, the house is apparently referred to as “Old Hickory” and has a storied past. It has also been a focal point of the community for ages with many people wishing someone would restore the grand dame to her former Italianate glory. Judging by the port-o-sans, construction equipments and a few articles online, that is now underway.
Perhaps I’ll pass through Coudersport again one day and see Old Hickory’s rebirth. Once you’ve been someplace once, it seems easier to do it again.
