Route 23 Delaware House

The OES visited the Route 23 Delaware House on June 29, 2003. Obviously, by the title, the home was located off US Route 23 in Delaware County. From the appearance of the house, it may have been built in the mid-to-late 1800s. Its last use seemed to be as a business of some sort, as there were papers and files scattered throughout the entire house and office furniture in the rooms. We looked through some of the documents and determined the business probably moved out sometime in the mid-1990s. The house and its surrounding acreage were set to be rezoned at the time of our visit. We thought this would mean one thing for the old house: demolition. And indeed, it did. When driving through the area in 2006, the house was no longer there. The land is still undeveloped as of autumn 2023.
