Just off Penn Avenue on West Reading’s South Seventh Avenue, the home of the late James M.K. Waldron sits inconspicuously atop a hill, the onset of rows of residences moving away from the main corridor.
The facade is freshly painted, and a new flight of concrete steps leads to a newly finished porch.
There’s nary a sign of the mysterious past of the home once occupied by Reading Public Museum‘s curator of fine arts.
No indication that until last summer it seemed to be frozen in time: back to 1974, when Waldron, a watercolor artist in his own right, died at age 64.
