Yet another Upton home going to waste, this time at the hands of the City. In this home lived the first African-American member of the Operative Plasterers’ and Cement Finishers’ Association, Local 155. Mr. David Leigh was granted membership in 1940, after trying for several years. An article about his acceptance into the union was published in The Afro-American.
The home is available through Vacants to Value, however — the home immediately next to it is not, and it’s in even worse shape. Hard to imagine anyone buying it and doing any sort of quality work on the home when it’s in danger of whatever happens to the property next door.
