It’s the Cat’s Meow


Back in the 1990’s an enterprising lady calling herself “Faxine” developed a clever line of famous houses and places to make a collectible wooden village.  She wisely discontinued certain pieces, thereby making the value of some pieces shoot through the roof. The Borden house was one of her historic homes offerings, and is worth plenty now if you can find one.  Sometimes EBAY has one for auction.  Former house owner Martha McGinn found a local artist to produce a replica of the house on Second Street- the scene of the crime, which alas, are impossible to get anymore as the artist is no longer producing them. If you have either reproduction- hang on to it!
