"With Glimpses of Creeks and a Vision of Mosses"
I'm glad the saved that house, it's beautiful.
It looks very different to what it looked originally. It was a lovely old home but not well maintained and lost in an overgrown garden. It has had quite a history including being a school at some point I believe.When I first moved here there were several other old timber mountain homes along the highway that just went into rack and ruin and were demolished so it is good to see the best ones kept.
We ... I am sure WE saved that house. We the taxpayer.But, yes, I am pleased it was saved. It is well maintained, and I like the original design.
Absolutely, it was taxpayer money that saved it and the church. The RTA takes particular effort in ensuring the vistas entering each of the mountains towns are attractive and welcoming. It makes us all kinder to the disruption and certainly improves the amenity of our town along with the issues having a bigger busier road brings.
