1009 Church St.

This house was at the center of a citywide controversy in 2008 when the owner proposed to move it to make way for a parking lot when the former Wesleyan retirement home was redeveloped for commercial use. After many Old Town residents protested the proposed move of the historic house, the owner agreed to work with the city on an alternate parking plan for the Wesleyan project. Now in an ironic turn of events, the owner has decided to live in this house himself and is adding an addition to it. The original garage has been demolished.
