According to the Real Property Sales Database, 1543 Eighth Street sold on March 18, 2010. The long-vacant property formerly belonged to Shiloh Baptist Church, which sold the caddy-cornered vacant property last year. Congratulations and thanks to the members and leaders of the church for selling both of its vacant properties on Eighth Street!
I recently spotted new fencing erected around 1543 Eighth, as well as the arrival of a porta-jon. The rumor I have heard is that the new owner intends to renovate the property into a single family home. I can't wait to welcome our new neighbors to the area!
