That's Rather Historic

Hoodline has the story of the Mish House, a Victorian that began its life in 1885 as a family home for 12, converted to apartments around the Depression, briefly housed a dance studio, and now hosts the mental health agency Westside Community Services. The house was originally built on Divisadero, but in 1889 the Mishes moved it to 1153 Oak, perhaps owing to the flurry of commercial activity on Divis. That's one approach to NIMBYism that's harder to practice these days: Simply move your backyard. [Hoodline]
