The photograph shows the most derelict house at 19 Pond Street (rt 126) in Ashland. It surpasses any occupied property in Framingham. At least Framingham has become more proactive recently. How can the Town of Ashland overlook such a visibly neglected house on a major road as Pond Street? It hasn't happened overnight. Notice the porch post no longer supports the roof, the sagging rear porch, broken railings and children's toys, the abundant decay and unsafe front steps to note a few. I can't imagine the conditions inside the house. Shame on the property owner. Shame on Ashland.
