Such a nice historic home, dating from the 1890’s, with all its woodwork and parquet flooring still intact.  There were once 7 such beautiful homes, dating back into the early 1800’s on this street in downtown Lima, but now only 2 remain.  All the rest were torn down in the 1950’s and early 1960’s, in those days before we began to realize how important it is to preserve our heritage.  The other house is standing empty, having been used as a YMCA for a number of years.  Its for sale – any offers?
