It’s a sad sight to see Addison Hall being demolished to make way for progress. Back in the 80’s, Mark and Kim Tibbetts (Burling) lived at the farm. I worked for Aurora Taxi, owned by Harvey Burling and Dave Smalley (Reliable Taxi) and I would make the trek daily to pick up Kim to bring her to work as our dispatcher.

Gary thank you for sharing. I spent many hours photographing the site during demolition. It was sad to see being demolished, there were many things left behind. Eventually I will post many more galleries of the demolition. The land is all empty now and they are now in the process of removing trees, probably ready to dig in the spring 2015. Anna.
