Meanwhile McMansion's and Flintstone Moderns are popping up there and driving peoples property and land taxes through the roof.

I suppose clinging to ancient history (the way things were) could offer some comfort until a flatbed rig pulls up with a giant bulldozer on it and unloads it right next door to you to start a sun blocking $900K house right next to your bungalow.
