Do You Want To Live At A Pokey Stop

If you are a Pokemon Go player you have probably thought "I wish my house was a pokey stop".   Unfortunately  you can not request for your house to be a pokey stop.  I guess if they made all of our homes Pokey Stops, it would defeat the point of getting you out to "catch them all".  But what if I told you that you could buy a Pokey Stop?  I present to you 800 W Sidnor St, in  Alvin, TX.  This address was originally the First Methodist Church.  It was built in 1925 and the members purchased 36,000 bricks at $1.00 each to finance the building.  The building sat vacant for some time and was purchased  by  Dr. David Karples, a Californian Philanthropist.  Dr. Karples runs the Karples Museum.  He is the owner of  the largest private manuscript collection in the world.  It is over one million items valued at one billion dollars.  He purchases buildings, like this one and turns them in to FREE museums for people to come see the manuscripts.  Due to issues bringing the building up to code, Dr. Karples listed the church/museum for sale.....and because of the code issues, it is listed as a residential property.

So you know what that means for you?  YOU CAN LIVE IN A POKEY STOP!
