Daily Dose of Blairmont 106

  • 2716 Thomas Street (N & G Ventures LLC, August 2005)

May 2008

It appears unremarkable at first, but it's as vintage as the rest of the neighborhood; online records date its construction to 1890. The unusual size and frame construction could mean it's older than that.

The last online evidence of occupancy is from 1994, but the vacant building reports, condemnations, and code infractions didn't start piling up till Blairmont got it.

Shrouded by a miniature forest, it seems to have lost some siding, the latest in a long succession of exterior claddings.
