Found this grand lady while out yesterday. Isn't she a beauty?

But she's in need of attention; abandoned and in total disrepair, I fell in love with her immediately. Didn't matter that she was in the most crime-infested part of town, surrounded by slums and meth lab houses, she's still a grand lady indeed and worthy of prose.

I agree with you. It looks somewhat Richardson Romanesque.

It's "funny" about interesting old houses (and churches). They often are in poor parts of town, built back when the area was prosperous. When the area went downhill, people left the houses alone and didn't tear them down to put up McDonald's and Wal-Marts.
