    When I see a name on a house I’m compelled to look it up:
    Henry Clay Meigs (1841-1824) was a farmer, merchant, postmaster and judge. He was a great-grandson of Revolutionary General Return J. Meigs, and a grandson of the famous John Ross, chief of the Cherokee during the Trail of Tears.
    H.C. Meigs was born in the Indian Territory and served with the Confederates during the Civil War; his brothers fought for the Union. After the war he married Josephine Bigelow and they had 8 children. Meigs lived to see the Army abandon the old fort across the street in 1890, and Oklahoma became a state in 1907.

  4. What a beautiful home! So much potential.

  5. Something about this one calls to me. I love her!

    That price, and yes a lot to fix it up but oh so worth it, with the Old Fort across the street, what a site to wake up to every morning with a cup of coffee on the front veranda. Oh this is real sweet!

    I so hope that someone buys this beauty and makes her shine again, and that the fort is restored as well (by the state maybe?) I would buy this if my children and grandchildren would come with me! Ha just a dream…. But what a historical home to restore. Wow….

    Wish someone could love this home back to life. The price sure is right

    I looked up the historical site, and the Fort is in pretty good shape, but this home is not so good. The most recent picture is from July 2016 not the “street view” which was in 2013. So sad to see this wonderful historical home just die on the vine…. I so hope and pray someone sees the potential of the great gal and but her and restore her! So with I could, but sadly I cannot….

    Wonderful…just needs to be unpainted. Is that a word?

    Goes to show you can’t judge a book by its cover. I took a quick look at the exterior and thought lost cause. The interior is in a lot better condition than I thought it would be. Very nice house for someone who wants a medium large project. I love the proportions of the rooms.

    Yes the price is a drawer. Come with lots of money for rehab. Be a beautiful home. Lots of history here.

    This is one of those houses that I say “Ooooo, I want to buy it and fix it up.” and my husband says “no”

    I don’t know what winters are like in this part of the country but I didn’t see any kind of heat source. I’m guessing the winters get cold here too! The house is a gem though!

    I live not too far from Fort Gibson. It is a beautiful area with a well known lake. The winters in Oklahoma are not too bad-we have an occasional snow storm that turns into a blizzard, but the heat,humidity, man eating bugs, and tornadoes are the real problems!

    I can’t find the year this house was built

  17. Watchy says: 1 comments

    The listing on zillow says it was built in 1920.
    I have looked at this house personally. It would take about 100+K to get it to code with wiring, termite damage, water and mold issues. Yes it’s cute, but it would take a total rebuild as the floor has fallen thru, the ceiling is falling down, etc.. you can literally walk up to it and pull the siding off with your hands. No insulation.
    Sad that it was not taken care of.

    I hope that someone will buy it and turn it into a nice home.

    Remind anyone of Green Acres?

    The house is in terrible shape. Just walked it yesterday. The pictures actually make it look a whole lot better than the shape it truly is in. The historical integrity of the home is gone due to the diy-er with $0 budget that has least lived in it. That’s why there are so few pictures. Especially of the kitchen. Very depressing to see. As well as the large hole cut into the side of the wall by the stair case that had plexiglass inserted…not sure of their vision, but it failed. The termites own this home now and it will only continue to fall victim to time and location. Such a shame.

    My husband and I are the new owners of this property. Just wanted to thank you, Kelly, for this site. While waiting on closing I have become addicted to Old House Dreams! I have learned so much looking at these old homes and reading the comments of your expert renovators. We are very excited about our project and learning more about our historical property. Thanks again

    Good for you….keep us posted

      Thanks Kelly and Lucinda, lots going on in the last few weeks! I was visited recently by a brother and sister who grew up in the house in the late 20s and 30s. Kitty is 90 and Jim is soon to be 93! They are a wealth of information. Their parents bought the house from the original owner in 1926 and their mother made many changes, some of which will stay. We’ve learned the house dates to around 1890 and we are planning a period accurate restoration. Work is going well and we expect the house to be off life support in a month or so. We are having lots of fun so far!

    Wendy, I loved the “off life support” comment. Many of the homes on this site look like they are on life support. Those are the ones I especially love.
