That empty lot in the center was the Gifford's house itself, which was moved several years ago.
I would love to know if you have heard any other information about Giffordville? The only thing I found online was this which shows that it must have still been around in 1898. The Gifford House is at least that old as it is a Queen Anne Victorian. http://www.ancestry.com/genealogy/records/cora-belle-metcalf_31297016
