Daily Dose of Blairmont 8

  • 2727 Samuel Shepard Drive

March 2003

Oh, this place. Man! At the time, it was the most ruinous building I'd ever seen in my life, and it just blew my mind. How could such a fine and noble building come to this state?

The house stood just beyond the eastern fringes of Midtown. It's right around the corner from the old Scott Joplin House; the Department of Natural Resources owns most of the surrounding lots.

The property belongs to "N & G Ventures LLC", who purchased it at the end of 2003 -- a few months after these photos were taken. Guess we can't blame all the problems on Blairmont!

It stood this way for another couple of years, but has since been demolished.
