The wait is over. Many of you have wondered what this once beautiful abandoned Pennsylvania Mansion once looked like and here is your chance to take a step back in time. All these photos of the house, Bella Vista, were emailed to me by Joe Hodges and his mother, Rose Marie. Joe is Dr. Dimedio grandson and his mother is Dr. DiMedio daughter of course. I spent a couple days talking to them through email about these pictures and they wanted me to share them with all of you. I would like to really Thank Joe and his Mom Rose Marie for allowing me to share these pictures. This house was for sure a beautiful place to live. The construction of the house was started on 7/12/45 and then finished on 11/19/47. Dr. Joesph DiMedio designed this house. The final cost of construction in 1947 was $50,257.90 us dollars which in today’s money would cost 2.5 Million Dollars. The stone for this house was from Lima Stone Quarry which is now the site of the Granite Run Mall. The house featured many room including a beautiful foyer, living room, bar, dining room and music room. The house was grand and elegant with beautiful large vases and sculptures. Have a look for yourself with the video posted below. If you have not seen my complete tour of this now abandoned mansion, search for Abandoned Pennsylvania Mansion. Enjoy.
