One of my favorite houses in Old Town - and one of my favorite restaurants - was damaged by a fire just before the holiday. The P.J. Anderson house is located on Church Street and has been home to several restaurants since I have lived in Georgetown. The latest restaurant there was Eats on 8th, which we just went to for my birthday this year. I hope the owner is able to rebuild - and reopen the restaurant!

People continue to purchase houses in Old Town so they can tear them down and build something else on the property. Last fall, a small house near the intersection of College Street and 4th Street was torn down to build a house that was recently finished (top) and a house near the intersection of 5th and Ash Streets was recently torn down to build a house that is currently under construction (bottom).

After years of neglect, the Louis P. Imhoff House at 208 S. Austin Ave. was finally sold and the word on the street is that the new owners plan to restore it. This house has many original features that are rarely seen any more, such as a root cellar and a cistern, so it will be a wonderful piece of history if it is restored.

This new house fits so well into Old Town that we almost didn't recognize it was a new house. This house is a vast improvement over the house that was previously on this lot at 1912 Church St. The previous house on the lot was demolished last September.
