It seems to me that the article is poorly researched and written. What's the importance of the house again? Is it because it's the "smallest" house or the "oldest" house? And why do I have to read half way through the article to figure out how old the house is? Really, how old is this house?
This article is part of a series of articles chronicling the
saving of one of the very few historical homes left in Mountain
The description of the moving experience of this home does not
require any research- it required presence- or appreciation of
what was accomplished here.
The people who were present experienced an exhilarating triumph
for the little house.Whether it was a triumph over the rampant
development,triumph of one caring person able to raise awareness,
the enthusiasm and unity of a community in an increasingly dis-
connected world,or just a triumph over time itself.Immigrant House had it's triumphant day on the 22nd!
The little house had its Victory Parade with many feeling joyous and
inspired.I give my cheers for Immigrant House.
I hope more people can join in the move and restoration of this little house when it journeys to it's new home-if I were you I wouldn't miss it.
Nice to hear the house was saved!
I agree with Martin and Wendy. The point is the home will be preserved as it should be. What I loved about downtown MV was the fact that old single family homes fused so well with new MV businesses on Castro - only a block away. This is slowly disintegrating as these homes are making way to more and more much-needed multi-family homes. Preservation is precious.
By the way "MY NAME IS"... why don't you really say what "YOUR NAME IS"? Those who have posted have done so.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
