If so, this one might just might be on life support. This cape on outer Congress has been abandoned now, for just about a year. A sign on the door reads that it is in the midst of foreclosure. Structurally, it looks to be in pretty good shape, no boarded-up windows nor sagging roofline. Portland has a monthly paper called the Bollard. There's a gal who writes a column called "That's My Dump". She rides around the city and checks out abandon properties each month. Now, these buildings are pretty much local eyesores, and she does her research and finds out who owns them and interviews the owners. Her choices are really dumps! I don't think I'd put this house into that category yet. It really is a cute little place, nestled among a few towering spruces.
Dr. Birdman wonders, "Might loneliness be its distant killer."
Can houses die of lonely hearts?
