This is the last Chapter in the saga of the Wilkes-Barre Lace Company.

The Former Wilkes-Barre Lace complex has been demolished and new houses are in its place.

Now instead of a run down old factory were people would go to shoot up, there is a nice, new development of houses.

The houses are cute, like something you would see down the Jersey Shore.
