There are some truly beautiful houses up at the crest of the hill where the Bissell Water Tower stands.
They’re in good condition, for the most part, including this old wood frame house below, probably built when this was the countryside.
Oh, oops, I just noticed the house is missing most of its windows. And what happened to the house below? It has been sitting like this for a long time.
