Historic Salisbury Foundation after photos

Here are the ‘after’ pictures of two houses saved in the past by Historic Salisbury Foundation. The ‘before’ pictures appeared on this same page last Tuesday, and Post readers were asked to give the names of the houses and where they are located. Richard Bowen answered the questions correctly. The house on the left, the Maxwell House, dates back to circa 1856 and is located today at 300 W. Horah St. The Maxwell House was originally located at 203 S. Lee St. on property owned by Richard and Garry Honeycutt. The Honeycutts donated the house to HSF on the condition that it would be relocated so they could use the lot for additional parking for their business, Uptown Connection. The house was moved to property sold to HSF by Elmer and Juanita Lagg. Protective covenants were applied to the house, which was purchased from HSF by then director Mark McDonald and his wife, Carolyn. An anonymous donor paid for the move. The house was eventually sold to Charles and Kay Paul and then to another former director, Jack Thomson and his wife, Maria. At right, the Shaver Rental House, 303 W. Council St., dates to circa 1905. This house, along with the other rental houses on its block, were sold to HSF by St. John’s Lutheran Church in 1987. Covenants were assigned to the house in 1988, and it was purchased by David and Phyllis Mullis. The properties are currently owned by Lisa Cartner.
