In February 2018, Gossips did a post about 94 North Fifth Street called "Take the Preservation Challenge." At the time, the house was for sale at the remarkably low price of $139,900. According to tax records, the house was sold for that amount in December 2018.
January 2021, when the house finally did come before the Historic Preservation Commission, it was explained that the porch had been removed "as a result of miscommunication." The HPC was assured that the details, particularly the ornate lattice brackets, had been preserved, and the porch would be reconstructed exactly as it had been.
Yesterday, a reader alerted me that the porch was back.
