    Historic maps indicate this home was originally built in a more traditional form, likely in a typical transitional Queen Anne/ Colonial Revival style that was common around the turn of the century. It was definitely there by 1901 and appears to have included a detached office building where the later addition to the south (left) is today. The old address appears to be 10 Vernon if anyone is looking for history.

    The woodwork makes me sad. It needs a lot of elbow grease to bring out the shine of the wood. This is the reason I could never have lots of woodwork, it wouldn’t be shiny enough. Just the little bit we have keeps me busy.

    The residents here in 1900, most likely the first owners, were Dr. Edson D. Pearson (1871-1946) and his wife Blanche Jones. Pearson was born into a Quaker family on a farm outside town. His grandfather had been an early settler in the area after moving from South Carolina.
    Dr. Pearson finished his medical studies and married in 1898. He and Blanche raised 4 children here, a doctor, a dentist, a pharmacist and a minister’s wife; a fifth child died of illness at age 8. Pearson had a family practice, and the addition to the left side of the house built after 1920 may have been his office. He was still the owner and resident here when he died from a heart attack at age 75.

    This home is a treasure trove of goodies! Every picture has something super cool in it! I’d love to own such a home. ?

    My favorite thing is the bathrooms! They haven’t been ruined by bad remodeling. Second favorite feature is the bottom hung casement windows that tilt inward. This is a well-preserved house.

    What’s with that wonderful built-in cabinet in the bathroom? Looks out of place. Wonderful woodwork and other built-ins make this house a bargain.

    Although I like the town of Wabash and it’s history, this home is probably priced so enticing because of the neighborhood (but if you got thirsty for a Pepsi in the middle of the night…) The inside of a wonder and could be stunning again easily.

    Diane, do tell….more about the neighborhood. Busy, dangerous, noisy, what?

    I love murphy beds! The built-ins in this house are amazing.
    I really like this house. I hope I can find something this great when I am ready to move next year.
