157 Greenwood Place

In 1979 Dorothy Adams bought this house for $1.00 in the Urban Homesteading Demonstration program. She owned the home until her death in 2005. Her executors sold the property in 2013 and by March 2014 it was owned by a Decatur builder. Two months later, the house (built c. 1922) was gutted and is being mansionized.
