This house at the corner of 5th and Pine Streets was recently purchased by a new owner and that owner went before HARC Oct. 27 for approval to demolish the house. HARC faces a tough decision on this one - the house has historical significance because its original owner was the bookkeeper for the Griffith Lumber Company, which built many of Georgetown's historic homes. But the house was remodeled extensively by a previous owner, who apparently added a second story to raise parakeets! The new owner hopes to build a new craftsman-style house in its place.
