Best kept house on the block!

[Andrea Rymill, 04/22/2015]

The "Hippie Temptation" house was featured in a widely seen CBS news documentary of the same name in 1967. "My mom thinks that where I'm living down here, the Hippies are a bunch of dirty, filthy, infectious people." Nice to see that now everything's clean enough for mom.
