    Wonderful! Looks like a fun project, and not as difficult as rebuilding the Parthenon. The proportions of the temple front are superb, and there’s quite a lot of original detail inside and out. An acre in a tiny town, ninety minutes to Cincinnati or Louisville.

    I love this house. I’ve loved it since I first saw it on the Indiana Landmarks page. I do wish the floor plans were available so I could drool some more.

    Thanks for posting this house, I lived in Dupont Ind when I was in the 3rd grade. I haven’t looked back at this town in a long time, however it looks like that not much has changed. I don’t remember this house, but there were several older homes in this community. I wished that google maps had street view. That was back in 1960 when we lived there..

    This reminds me so much of a little house I lived in for a few years in Rockville, Indiana. I was only 5, but I remember a central hallway, with two connecting bedrooms to the left and a living room with gas fireplace to the right. At the end of the wallway, was a short cross hallway that led to the eat-in kitchen to the right, the bathroom in the center, and a sleeping porch, and even at 5 I knew that porch was a mess. The floor sloped badly – we kids weren’t even allowed to play in there.
    Sadly, the house was burnt nearly to the ground many years later. At that time, it was discovered the house’s foundation actually large stones (there’s a reason the town’s name is Rockville!). The owner did rebuild the house, but he did so by salvaging the materials he could from the house, then tearing it down and starting over from a new foundation up. So what’s there looks almost like the original, it’s just not the same.
    These little Greek revivals are about the only ones I like 🙂 and this little house could be such a beauty once restored.

    Sweet little house. Not sure about being next to the feed mill, but . . . .
    I’m wondering if the level of detail inside would have matched the front elevation.

    Authentic Greek Revival houses with largely intact and undisturbed interiors are becoming scarce. Some are huge, almost the size of the Greek Temples that inspired them but there are smaller examples like this one which comes in at aprox. 1600 square feet. A big plus is the intact front facade which has original looking shutters and columns. I’m glad Indiana Landmarks is involved as they will insure the exterior appearance remains unchanged. The interior here is also largely original (but has electrical) No mention is made of bathrooms, so hopefully indoor plumbing was at some time brought into the house. The wider plank flooring, mantels, baseboards, door and window trim, should be kept but otherwise some interior redesign may be required for modern living. This rare house is literally a part of the community’s early history. A preservation purist could really get into this one and bring back the period details. It comes with an acre of land, another plus.

  7. I love this style of house and especially this one as it’s not too big.

    Even a rehab novice like myself would feel reasonably confident working on this with my equally novice hubby as a nice retirement project!
