My soon to be new home town made CNN’s top 8 list of cities that are losing population but are real bargains. Parkersburg is #7 in the montage. I actually considered the house pictured in the article. It’s a beautiful old house that has been fully restored as a B & B. The only problem was that the 3 bedrooms on the 3rd floor have a very strange layout. We bought a house just around the corner from that one that is much more sane. It’s a pretty big house, so we’ll have lots of room for HERP&ES guests.
