I've been driving past this house in Houghton for a couple of years now and wondering who owns it, what will happen to it, what's the history behind it. At first I thought it was going to be renovated and that was exciting because most old homes get demolished for giant new monstrosities to be built. Then any kind of activity just stopped and the house is now overgrown with plants and it's windows and doors have been barricaded. There is a beautiful crest above the front entrance with the word 'Athol' which I presume is a family name. If anyone stumbles upon this and has any more information about this house on Houghton Drive, please let me know. Or if you want to buy it for me that would be fine too.
