Houses for sale on N. Main?

Question Corner July 2012

Q: What's the deal with the four houses for sale on Main north of Summit? Only one has a driveway, so how do people get to and from them? Will they all be sold at once?

A: When Italian immigrant Benedict DeFilippi bought the property a century ago, it had one house on it. DeFilippi built three more, making some of the concrete blocks himself. The houses, which share a small parking lot, are being sold as a group by his eight grandchildren.

Realtor John Simpkins assumes that the buildings will be torn down and the property regraded for new development-unless, as the cousins hope, the city decides to buy it. The view of the river is very nice.    (end of article)
