232 S. Main - Julius Pura Property<
    The house sat on the corner on Main and Madison on the northeast corner and was razed in 2006 and a part of the Collins building and became a parking lot.

    Julius Pura ran a Junk Yard and had a back lot that intersected with South Plymouth Street across the alley from the house and which from Marmont Street to Madison Street the barn/sheds existed for years till the Culver Cve project bought them from Mabel and Bess Pura and tore themdown - they were literally packed with items and lots of and lots of old newspapers both Mabel and Bess were unmarried and hoarders - and much of the stuff was left from their father's junk business. The lot then was sold as financial problems set in with the Cove project.


the Address of 232 s. Main st. and 226 S. Main St. which were the sheet metal shop and an empty lot became extinct numbers all combined into this address. The 'Collins Buillng' or rather 'Main Street Centre' building sits on these two lots and the former Pura residence is their parking lot.
