Who bought the house next to Community Trust Bank and is having it renovated? I heard it was a doctor or lawyer in town?

It was probably one of the worst looking houses in town, now it looks like one of the best.

It was Nell Guy Macnamara's house. She was the first female School Superintendent and an early female state representative in the 1930's. She died last year at the age of 101. Dr Lon Roberts bought the house and completely refurbished it. The only thing I didn't like was the addition he built onto it. It would have looked much better just restored as it was.

I love the house that Dr. Roberts is re-storing. I think it is great to be able to afford to bring back what was once one of the prettiest houses in it's day to what it is today. I wish that everyone who owned the old homes that they purchase would really take the time to restore them as much as possible to their original state. Not everyone can afford to do that, but doing a little at a time makes it that much more exciting. Dr. Roberts has done a wonderful job reseaching the work I noticed when I pass the house the wood work, scroll work that is done to make sure it matches even on the new addition. It almost looks as if that part was always there. What a great credit to our down town, just one more beautiful home to look at and enjoy.

It would be nice if the person who owned the old school would do something about it. Either restore it and put offices or something in it, or tear it down and put a small park or something there.

My hat's off to Bliffen Construction for the wonderful job on the renovation. They are the ones to whom the praise should be given. They did the work.

It was absolutely a great job restoration job. They really seem to know their stuff. Where are they from and what other properties have they restored?

Bliffen Construction is owned by Chad Bliffen, not sure what other properties he has done though.

Also, the old Sideview Store Building in Northern Montgomery County. It is a very unusual building built across the creek in the style of a covered bridge. It would be a tragic shame for it to just be allowed to rot away. I know of no other building like in the State.
