579 Church

Scene of an intentionally set fire earlier this week, 579 Church is probably not long for this world.

These photos above date from 2002, and in the last 13 years, the house has suffered from a lack of maintenance and care, but was still a great old Queen Anne style house. Built about 1885, it stood on Church Street, just north of Wyandotte for about 130 years. Sadly, some moron set the place ablaze, and either demolition or extensive remolding is in its future.
