Second house next to the Beehive was also demolished this past week. There are for sale signs in front of both, so the owner must be looking to sell lots. It is a big parcel, much wet, but I seem to recall being told that uses are limited to use of the existing house footprint.
The house at the corner of Harding and West Mill Streets, known as the Beehive, was demolished this past week, with the red single story house next to it also coming down.
