This overgrown mess surrounds one of a row of four residences on Eagle Boulevard near Shelbyville Central High School.
Visitors to Shelbyville Central High School, when arriving from the west end of Eagle Boulevard, are greeted by a row of four structures -- actually, what's left of those structures -- surrounded by roof-high weeds. One of the abandoned homes has an "Unfit for human habitation or use" sign next to the front door and under where a window once was. Most animals actually deserve something better than this.
It's too bad a few people could care less what their property looks like. Many of the rest of us find such a mess disgusting, especially when it's in a heavily-traveled location.
Hopefully these will be among those buildings demolished under the city of Shelbyville's plan to attack blighted structures.
Maybe we should just tell visitors that it's a nature preserve for the nearby students to study...on second thought, forget it. No one would ever believe that.
