Davenport, IA, nonprofit receives bank's donation of foreclosure-- a historic 1860's house built by Civil War vet-- in the hopes they can put it to community use.
"A vacant house — a relic from a bygone era that sits across from Davenport Central High School — has been given by a bank to the Hilltop Campus Village in hopes the nonprofit can find someone to buy and fix it up. The 19th-century brick home had gone into foreclosure and has been boarded up for at least three years. The Wells Fargo real estate office recently donated it to the Hilltop organization under the bank's Community and Urban Stabilization Program. " -- Alma Gaul, the Quad-City [IA, IL] Times
