The current owner purchased this home in 1994 for $5,500. It had been in been in poor condition, but a lightning strike coupled with a tragic fire did further damage. After the fire, the structure was left open to the elements for an extended period, and it was finally slated for demolition. To rehabilitate, the owner had to work with the Urban Rehabilitation Standards Board, which delayed permits for six months. The board eventually issued permits with a deadline for completion and a penalty of $500 per day for overage. In the end, only some of the foundation, about 200 square feet of flooring, and a small exterior wall were salvaged from the original structure. The neighborhood gave the house the “Nicest Renovation” award at the celebration for the tenth anniversary of the Kings Highway Conservation District.

The privately owned amusement park boasted, at 18,000 square feet, “the largest skating rink in the world,” as well as amusement rides, a Ferris wheel, a casino and a three-story theater and opera house.
