Eyesore near Troll torn down

By master · July 24th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Just to the west of the Fremont Troll, this abandoned house had attracted just about every tagger in town over the last several months.

And now the eyesore is gone, demolished by the owner a couple weeks ago. At last week’s Troll meeting, neighbors told us they’re happy it’s gone.

The property is currently for sale. We checked with the real estate agent today, and he said a townhouse developer is interested in the land.

    I don't think it was the graffiti that made it an eyesore. I think the plywood over the windows, the sagging roof and the pile of dead branches were doing fine without any help from “every tagger in town.”

    It is a nice lookin' bulldozed lot, though …
