The old Hubbard-Cotton Store was in a bad state of disrepair when we featured it in our magazine in 2005—so bad that the town of Hiram was planning on demolishing it. In 2006, the house was purchased by a gentleman who planned on turning it into a bed and breakfast, or returning it to its original purpose as a country store. After adding a new roof and interior framing, his plans, unfortunately, fell through, and the home is now back on the market for $150,000. Located at the foot of the White Mountains, the 1850s Greek Revival is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Call Paul Howe to save this home from demolition.
