This house, 133 W. 4th St. is a rather interesting house. So far it can be traced back to 1898. It may be older than that but it does show up at 1898 Sanborn fire insurance map. Evidently, there was at least one murder in this house. At least one woman was murdered in the house a few years back. The house had somewhat of a reputation of being haunted.




This picture with taken in 1944. You can see the house, 133 W. 4th St. in the background. If you look closely at it you will see that it looks different than it does today. What you can see of the roof is considerably different then than it is now. When the changes were made we have no idea.




This in the next picture were taken from approximately the same as 1944 picture was taken from.

The roof in the front of the house at 133 W. 4th St. has been changed since 1944. In addition some other changes are evident past that house going eastward since 1944.




This map is a portion of a 1949 aerial of you of the same area. It shows what the north side of the 100 block of W. 4th St. looked like at that time. The building on the corner of West fourth and market Street was Sayre Electric. I'm not sure what the building was directly west of it.

Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
