This house was given to the Town of Spencer in June 2017 by John R. McFee, who had owned the property since 1968. This two-story frame house with a hip roof and cross gables has an undistinguished exterior, thanks in part to composite siding added in the ‘50s or ‘60s. However, its historic interior remains largely intact with most wood trim, stairs and mantels remaining unpainted.
The Town of Spencer and the Salisbury Community Development Corporation (CDC) formed a partnership to renovate the house. This unconventional arrangement will help Spencer return a vacant historic house back to the market with all of the modern conveniences and restored historic charm. The renovation will be largely complete by OctoberTour.
