I was pleased to read the great news that one of the last original Shepherdstown houses will be saved from decay and will be restored. A number of townsfolk have wished for years for this news.
Gratitude goes to Dr. Suzanne Shipley and Dr. Keith Alexander of Shepherd University and Mr. John Allen and Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Lowe of the community for their respective expertise in securing the funds.
