Schlosser Home Contracting is in the process of building a four-unit condo on West First Street, just east of Adventureland Video. While doing some excavating, the company stumbled on some unexpectedly large footings that were placed under the ground. The company did some research and learned that a private partnership in the late ’20s bought the lot and planned to build something there, but the only thing built were the footings. No other paperwork exists on any project in that location during that time. The company is interested to know if anyone might know what was intended to be built in the location at that time, and who was involved in the stalled project. If someone has any information, you can contact Perry Schlosser at 220-0467.
