Coming Soon: Nothing! James Clemens Mansion Edition

Update: See photos of the Clemens Mansion in the 1960s here. The site is still a vacant lot.

We all knew this was how it was going to end, but it still hurts to see. Note: all offers to purchase the property were rejected, so don’t pull the old, “Well, why didn’t you buy it if you wanted to save it?” argument. Who wants to place bets on how many decades the land will sit vacant?
