Khristi Zimmeth, Detroit News, June 25, 2015 (A restored home in Boston-Edison)
Karen Brown still cringes when she thinks about the condition of the Boston-Edison home when she purchased it 20 years ago. "It was in terrible shape," she says of the 1917 residence. "The pipes had burst and there was water everywhere." But her parents lived in the neighborhood, she had long dreamed of living in a historic house and she could see past the home's sad state to what it could be with a little patience. "This is the only one I looked at," she said.
