As described by the seller last year, the total land is just over one acre, but according to the state property record for 701 Concord Street, it sits on 13,125 SF (about 0.3 acre). Zillow’s real estate website has an additional 0.46 acre north of the house lot included in the $1.29 million sale to the city last year, which would total 0.76 acre. Zillow also shows a 0.34 acre extending from south of the house beyond the fence to the edge of the lighthouse and the only sales history is in 1995 (Gamatoria purchase). Most officials in this town, including the city attorney, are not the sharpest tacks… so do we actually know what was purchased?

I dont know if anyone else has noticed but that house is a mess. I know the fire department is using it for training but now it looks like a complete eyesore: holes cut in the side, doors and frames ripped off, etc. Thats a great thing for visitors to be greeted with when they come to see the lighthouse and promenade. Im sure all the springtime brides getting married outside the lighthouse will be thrilled that they are getting married next to a run down house. Hopefully it will be temporary but I doubt it with the way things are ran in this city.

Well the people or some of the people in Havre de Grace voted to purchase the property so it seems the city government and its citizens are not to bright.

The problem with hdg is nobody votes. Only 15-20% of eligible voters actually do. And it’s mostly old-towners who don’t pay much in taxes with their homestead credits and measly retirement incomes. Hdg keeps spreading like a disease, overtaxing those in newer developments, who have to deal with the ‘we don’t want you here anyway’ attitude. Amusing, but it’s getting old. Everyone west (actually north) of Rt. 40 should separate from hdg and change our name to Chapel Hill, MD or Swan Creek, MD. Let the city dissolve in its own stupidity.
