I think I just posted this in the wrong spot...so I will retry again.
Since I last posted....we bought out my brother that wanted to tear everything down. Currently we are working to separate the house on 1.5 acres to keep the land from endangering the house. The land is under contract. We put the house up for review with the Massachusetts Historic Commission and it was deemed "eligible" for restriction and "eligible" for nomination in the national registry. We are deliberating the nature and the extent of restriction...has anyone had any experiences with historic restrictions??? We will soon be moving to market once we decide how restrictive to get.
