That's why the Chamber of Commerce gave it a beautification award just this past year right? Quite a difference from that "other" neighborhood you speak of.<quoted text>
There is another neighborhood in Gettysburg which has houses not in the best condition. Some residents are low income, some are renters. People call those buildings eyesores. Compared to the bunting and clutter and the hodgepodge building of the chapel, those houses look fine. The chapel was a thrown together mess from the onset. It was an eyesore.

The Chamber of Commerce would give a beautification award to a bed of flowers if it occupied an otherwise vacant lot on a main street in Gettysburg. It wasn't the chapel that was beautiful - because it was an eyesore - but the fact that the lot wasn't empty that the Chamber liked.

I'm still curious as to what constitutes an eyesore.

I like you, live in a tourist town,as well as my hometown Bethlehem, the Christmas city. There are jeers and cheers amongst the local folks here also. But whenever we venture into a new town, we must remember we are their guests. Respect of their town and our polite manners will make the visit pleasurable. HAPPY TRAILS
