    That’s a whole hell of a lot of corrugated metal. And the historic buildings left over from the Sisters’ era have been pretty messed up.

    It’s not surprising that a State-auction had no effort put into curb-appeal.

    Not sure what would be best for this property. It sure has a lot of “stuff” – those giant outdoor coolers would be awesome for a BBQ. Plus, they have a Shrine.
