Ridley Park's Online Digital Community

Mike Beatty and his restored house at 209 E.
Ridley Ave. received Ridley Park's 2010 Historic Preservation Award. The
qualifications for maintenance and authenticity are based on the United
States secretary of the interior’s standards for the treatment of
historic properties.

He bought the house in 2006 and spent the last three years restoring the three-story, 10-room house and authoring a companion blog about his project. Mike's blog is where you can find photos and his step by step reconstruction.

Barbara Ormsby's article in the DelcoTimes gives the story, background details and video.
