: The William R. Barker House - search on that

: The state gives a 20% credit for historic
: restoration and the county gives 10%. Plans
: should be submitted in advance in order to

: money is spent.
: If your friend buys it, I highly recommend
: buying historic replacement value insurance

: but it can be changed after the restoration.
: Things can happen during a restoration that
: are unexpected & it really paid for us.

: I have a friend who is trying to purchase
: house. It is a historical house in Aquasco
: and has the historical marke on it. Right
: now the banks owns it so they aren't wanting
: to lower the price any, but I looked on the
: property search to find old sellers, but I
: just wanted to see if anybody could give me
: a little more history on the house. My
: friend is wanting to restore it and
: estimates it would take roughly $300,000 to
: do. Thanks for any information you have on
: the house!
