We took a look around the house when it was on the market in February of 1987. The house has changed hands more than once since then. After it was sold in 2017, the bright exterior paint and bold lawn ornaments were added.

The town of Hillsborough recently filed suit, claiming the house is a nuisance that violates multiple municipal codes.
