Whatever happened to Baltimore’s Dollar House program?
Back in the 70s and 80s, you could buy a vacant house for a dollar if you promised to fix it up and live there. What happened to that deal? Why did it end? Can the city bring it back? And by the way, are any of those original homesteaders still around?
In this episode, we hear from:
Dollar House homesteaders Lillie Hyman and Judy Aleksalza
Jay Brodie, former Baltimore City Deputy Housing Commissioner
Mary Pat Clarke, former Baltimore City Council President
Tyrone Bost, head of H.O.M.E.S.
