Home Street building gets patriotic face-lift

GEORGETOWN – Patriotic flair is in the air for anyone driving down Home Street or South Main Street in Georgetown. When you reach the Party Place/OneMain Financial building in Georgetown, you get blown away by murals painted by Ken Miller.

Current owner Delbert Aicholtz said the building is getting more than an external face-lift, it is getting new tenants in the spring 2016. Aicholtz said the Veteran’s Administration Extension Clinic of the Cincinnati VA will soon occupy the space. But, the murals aren’t because of the move by the VA, Aicholtz planned the murals regardless.

“The VA is moving in there,” Aicholtz said. “I was going to do it (paint the murals) any way. That is exactly what I wanted to do with both sides of the building. The fact they are moving in is just perfect.”

On the Main Street side of the building, the mural is of an eagle with the American Flag and United State soldiers reading ‘Freedom isn’t free” on the Home Street side of the building, is a Unite States flag that stretches from end to end.

Aicholtz has a lot of work ahead on him to get the building to ready for the transition.

“We are gutting the building and basically starting over,” Aicholtz said.
