Hard To Believe…

If there is one thing I never thought I would see, it is the renovation/restoartion of the Ransom Gillis House at 205 Alfred. Built in 1876, it was designed by architects Brush & Mason.

It is just amazing to see the progress in Brush Park. While there are still some losses, this is a big victory. I can’t wait to watch this one progress.

There is an interesting website with some history here.
