Public Records - Creepy

I'm in a hotel for the weekend for work, in one of those towns that doesn't have much going on 'til summer and in the winter they roll the sidewalks up at 6:00 pm.  So I can't get any work done on the house. Mr. Griffin is in pieces on the dresser, and I have hotel-quality cable TV.  With little else to do, I find myself looking up off-the-wall stuff on the internet.  I have no idea how I got onto this particular line of searching, but I came across some public records about ol' 173.  At first I thought it was pretty cool to find this stuff, then it got to buggin' me that there's so much information out there - for anyone's perusal!  Well, I guess there's not much to be done about it.
So what I found was the Deed, Property and Tax records and this is the information on the very first page:

Here's a few things I thought was interesting.  First, was the "Building Style".  Looking at my previous post, you probably realize I suffer from a small case of Identity envy.  Seems like the tax assessors were kinda muddled too!  The next thing of note to me was the square footage which came up to 1,231 sq ft, which by today's standards I guess, is pretty small.  Funny, seems plenty big for us!  Of course, what isn't mentioned is the finished attic and a fully functioning basement, complete with laundry room, workshop, and what?  Basement space?  Anyway, 173 certainly lives larger that 1,231.  The last thing that really caught my attention was the year built.  1927.  For years I thought it was built in '29, then I adjusted my thinking to '28.  Well, apparently I was still wrong - 1927 it is!
That's my stuck-in-a-small-town-hotel surfing safari.  Wonder what other scary stuff I can find.
