40 minutes from perfect

Yesterday we went to see a property that has long been of interest. Located next to the “Hart Store” and across from the Town Hall. This is the Hart Creamery.

View from the second floor/ attic “window”. The building sits on just over an acre on Hwy. 43 and is zoned CD/ Community Development.

Upon visiting we could see why it has been on the market for over a year. The repairs are daunting as a gaping hole in the roof has allowed a lot of moisture intrusion.

However, being mainly masonry and concrete, there is minimal damage (relative to other buildings we own/ have seen).
It’s not as close to home as we’d like but that is the precise issue most of these small town treasures face.

So-what is the reuse that will bring this place back to life? Pancakes and eggs on the weekend with some art and music might be nice 🙂
