A run down, "shabby" house takes stage on Watertown's Public Square during a renovation project in 1934. The city watched it change as local contractors pitched in to give the pre-Depression era home a new look.

Kelly and Christina talk about the renovation, what happened to the house and how its beautification sought to improve the city as a whole.
