Stopped by the Austin Bearse house yesterday on 38 Birch Hill Rd in Centerville and saw it for the first time. I just discovered I was a descendant of Augustine Bearse a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to see the house. For those of you who saw the house when it was for sale about 10 years ago, you won't like what I saw. There appear to be several broken or missing window panes on the second floor gable end facing east. If this is so, snow and rain could be pouring into the second floor and will eventually cause structural damage. I talked to a neighbor who says he rarely sees anyone around. Help!
