6430 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia
The National Trust for Historic Preservation is seeking a new owner for Upsala. Upsala is comprised of a mansion house dating to 1798, sited on approximately two and one-half acres of land, including an open lawn and garden. The main house is a significant example of late Georgian and early Federal architecture, and possesses a high degree of integrity of materials and workmanship.
Currently Upsala is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and leased to Cliveden, Inc. which operates Cliveden, a historic site located across Germantown Avenue from Upsala. Upsala was acquired by the National Trust in cooperation with Cliveden, Inc. in 2005, in order to preserve the property and for it to be operated sustainably as part of the operation of Cliveden. During its ten-year operation of Upsala, Cliveden, Inc. completed an archival and architectural assessment, rehabilitated the exterior of Upsala, and explored numerous options for a financially sustainable future for Upsala. The National Trust and Cliveden, Inc. are now requesting proposals for the acquisition and financially sustainable preservation of Upsala. Although Upsala has been owned and operated by preservation organizations for seventy years, the National Trust and Cliveden, Inc. welcome proposals for nonprofit or income-producing uses, as well as proposals from individuals, including proposals that would return Upsala to its original use as a residence.

Historic Oyer House c.1830                                                                   $388,000
11031 Franks Road, Huntingdon, PA 16652
Hidden in a peaceful, private rural enclave, near large areas of state forests, parks and famous fishing and hunting areas, this unique house on 1.8 acres is within an easy drive of a major university and the cultural assets it affords. Every effort has been made to restore this house with a restrained hand and a "less is more" philosophy in close conversation with the National Register to be sure its architectural integrity was carefully respected.
The interior is in an unusually fine state of preservation, with original baseboards, chair rails, chimney cabinets, and hardware, including period box locks and door latches. But it is the  quality "and the superb original condition of a large amount of decorative painting found throughout the house"* which makes it unique in this area. All the doors facing the first and second floor halls are trompe l'oeil versions of exotic woods as are all the chimney cabinets. The baseboards in each major room exhibit various simulated marble patterns. In the back parlor, under layers of old wall paper, was discovered rows of stenciling, from floor to ceiling, in various states of preservation.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Oyer House is located approximately 20 minutes from State College and Penn State University in a beautiful rural setting on 2+/- acres.

 Jackson Rooming House

1006 North 6th Street, Harrisburg, Dauphin County                       Price - make an offer

Built in 1884, this building is highly significant in African-American history as the home of German Jackson, an African-American who worked as head doorman at the Penn Harris Hotel. In the era of segregation, when blacks were not welcome in Harrisburg’s hotels, notable visitors including Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong stayed here.

After it was listed in Pennsylvania At Risk in 2011, an ambitious preservation-minded man stepped up and acquired the building, spending two years working to subdivide it from the adjoining Jackson House restaurant. During that time, the condition of the building deteriorated significantly, and the current owner is no longer able to rehabilitate the building.

Preservation Pennsylvania hired a structural engineer to evaluate the property, which has suffered extensive interior collapse. The engineer determined that rehabilitation is technically feasible, but that the cost may outweigh its value upon completion.
In one final effort to save this property from demolition, the current owner is willing convey the property to a preservation-minded individual or organization willing to take on the task of rehabilitating the building. If you are interested in learning more about the property or making an offer, please contact Kerry Helm at kwhelm@yahoo.com
