Property Reports

North Main Street Lot

Name House

This land is owned by the family of L.B. Adshead.  Hopefully it will not be developed.  If development is its destiny, perhaps an historical structure from the area can be moved to the lot.  Not only would this save the historical integrity of this part of East New Market, but it could save a significant historic structure.  The east side of North Main Street has two historic properties moved from elsewhere.  A third dating from the 19th century or before would seem acceptable.
