    Be sure to check out the street view before getting too excited. I included on of the photos from the National Register PDF from 1978 when it was an antique and doll store.

      The 1978 image says it all, how great old houses are often reduced to antique curios behind chain-link fences, just waiting to be torn down so the land could be put to “better use”, like a gas station or parking lot. It’s a wonder the house is still there. Thanks for putting that one up, Kelly.

    I feel like I’m experiencing deja vu. Wasn’t this JUST on OHD like last year or something?

    I was hoping the garage with turntable was still there and they would show it. Would be cool to see that!

    I know we can’t hold back progress, but I hate to see this grand home and it’s charming neighbor the only ones left. Must admit, I’m a little worried for her.

    Considering the location, I’d imagine the highest and best use would be commercial. The realtor’s architectural description is obviously not complete with those huge Ionic columns screaming neoclassical as the primary style in addition to the Stick/ Queen Anne elements noted in the description. The author in the link below notes the stucco exterior and red tile roof as Mission Style elements.

    Here’s a bunch more info including Sanborn maps, historical photos, and some history…

    I like the exterior a lot but the interior really is one of the best.

    I remember this house well from growing up in Marshall in the 60’s. At that time, Mr. & Mrs. Francis Franks owned the house and their antique business occupied the house while the garage was a fabulous antique doll museum not a doll store. The turntable outside the garage operated from a hand crank inside if I remember correctly. The Franks had a very successful business and were always letting local groups like Camp Fire Girls, school groups, etc. tour the doll museum. The fence that is there was not erected until much later, I suspect to deter theft and vandalism. It’s amazing that some much of it is still original, especially the interior considering people’s tendency to renovate and ruin architectural beauty for the sake of modernization. It’s a beautiful old home with a rich history if you look it up to see the history of it including the Hochwald family. It would be such a shame to see it purchased and torn down for commercial use but that’s what’s happened to many of the historical buildings in Marshall. No appreciation for fine architecture and history.

    Too bad it would be impossible to just pick this place up and put it on a nice street somewhere! Such a magnificent home!

    House is lovely, to bad about the street view though. Need’s to be in a tree covered neighborhood. 🙁
