Former Buttermilk Hill Tavern Property Still Abandoned
A wooden fence now surrounds the property, but no updates have been made to the lot.
Questions still remain on the status of the former location of the Buttermilk Hill Tavern in Elkridge.
In October, Elkridge Patch reported the empty lot at 6100 Washington Blvd. was being used by two men, who declined to identify themselves, to sell used automobiles.
Since then, a large wooden fence was installed to enclose the property and orange barrels alongside the fence have been knocked over, some crushed.
Do you think the site is an eyesore? What should be done with it? Tell us in comments.
Spray paint seen recently on the wooden fence on Feb. 27 reads, "Viva la revolucion" and "You are a slave!"
A sign that previously read, "for sale, lease options, owner will finance", according to a Google street view picture, now only reads, "For s lease op o."
The property was sold by Auto Sales Inc. on Oct. 2, 2012 to James Guzman, of Silver Spring, for $550,000, according to Maryland's Real Property database.
Recent attempts to contact Guzman were unsuccessful.
The Department of Inspections, Licenses and Permits for Howard County said that as of Feb. 28, it had not received any applications related to the property.
