It didn't take long to figure out there are some DISGUSTING houses in Wharton. I hear they are owned by the same landlord. I'm sure I'm not the only person who would like to see these homes cleaned up or eradicated. There is trash on their front porches, around back, infestations of bugs and they are eyesores to the community. They aren't even in liveable conditions! How embarrassing! Those of us who care about our homes deserve neighbors who feel the same way.

You think it looks bad from Westerville...try living beside the dumps.. The yards aren't mowed The stench that comes from the houses is unbreathable...Trashiest I have ever seen Wharton in my life.Used to be a nice town, now nothing but scum. The houses in question do not even attract the scum any more.. I say tear them down...Some of us have spent our lives here and are ashamed to say where we live.Need a Mayor who has balls..or council to make up new ordinances..

Just to clarify, the internet provider one uses goes through a "Server". Apparently, our server goes through Westerville and yours goes through Mechanicsburg.

So, I do INDEED live in Wharton. I am alarmingly close to some of these houses we speak of.

I don't even want to invite family over because it is so embarrassing for them to see the surroundings. I don't even want to raise my child in this town but I OWN my flippin' house. Why should I move because the landlord that owns these houses is too damn lazy to clean them up?

Something NEEDS to be done. Plenty of nice houses in Wharton, but honestly these dumps just ruin the charm.

I can see atleast 4 dumps just standing on my front porch.

Wharton is my hometown. I grew up there and still remember the town fondly. I know a lot of the houses have been run down over the years. A majority of that is because there are a lot of elderly that can't take care of things for themselves. But the landlord you speak of is Barb Fite. She is a slum lord that does nothing for her renters. And from what I've heard of the renters they don't care if she doesn't. She needs run out of that town ASAP. My grandmother has a house in Wharton and it unfotunatley is one of the run down houses now. She is physically unable to maintain it anymore. It will probably be demolished within the year.

Someone decided to break into my grandmother's house in her absence. I will find out who did it. If anyone has any information please let me know. Wharton is not that big of a town and someone is going to talk. I will find the person or persons that did this. They took some very valuable property of hers. You have to be some kind of scum to rob the elderly.
