For the second time in two years, this historic Wichita restaurant is closed, for sale

Jack’s North Hi Carryout is closed… again.

And it’s back on the market… again.

The most recent owner of the little burger restaurant that’s operated across from North High School since 1951 says that he’s had to shut it down. Jack’s has been closed since late September.

Armin Ghoddoussi, who’s owned the restaurant at 603 W. 13th St. for nearly two years, says there are a couple of reasons for the decision, and perhaps not surprisingly, COVID-19 is one of them.

Business has taken a hit since the pandemic started, he said. A big part of his customer base — North High students — have been attending classes online instead of at school across the street.

Plus his mother, Akhtar Gharagozolo, who’d been running the restaurant for him, is having trouble keeping up.

“The reasons are mostly my mother having a hard time managing it and also getting a bit

Preservation group acquires 6 historic homes in Indiana city

WABASH, Ind. (AP) — A preservation group plans to renovate the exteriors of six run-down homes in a northern Indiana city and put them on the market next year in hopes of spurring a historic neighborhood’s rebirth.

Indiana Landmarks said it acquired the historic homes, built in Wabash between the 1870s and the early 1900s, during an auction. The Indianapolis-based nonprofit said the homes illustrate a range of architectural styles in the city’s East Wabash Historic District.

“There truly is something for everybody, from a modest, wood-frame house to larger Victorians. It’s a mad mix of styles and sizes,” said Paul Hayden, director of Indiana Landmarks’ northwest office in Wabash.


Hayden will lead the renovation of the homes’ exteriors and the effort to put them back on the market in early 2021. The properties recently served as rental housing, and most were divided into apartments.

Wabash has a vibrant downtown,

This Historic Home Doubled in Value After a Subtle Renovation

It doesn’t matter how perfect your home is—if your listing photos don’t stand out, potential buyers won’t come by to take a look. In our series “Lessons From Listing Photos,” we dissect the smart updates sellers have made to their homes, and how their listing pictures highlight the home’s best assets.

The neighborhood of Irvington, in northeastern Portland, is actually home to the largest collection of historical homes in the state, including this massive five-bedroom, three-bathroom Craftsman built in 1912.

Through the decades, the owners had maintained many historical architectural touches, but the property was desperately in need of updating in 2013, when it was sold for $762,000. Luckily, the buyers knew exactly how to modernize it while honoring its past. And when it came
