    Today’s old house photo is of the Dunham family. Jacob, Lulu (spelled Lule on some census records) and son Donovan.

    I thought this would be a cute postcard photo for today but then found that Donovan (their only son, 7 in the photo) passed 6 years after this photo was taken at age 13 in 1916 (link to Donovan’s stone.) Lulu, 1871-1935. Jacob, 1863-1944. Ancestry users, Jacob’s page. I believe the home (they rented but were in Los Angeles when Donovan passed) stands at 1526 Porter Ave in Lawrenceville, Illinois: map link.

    Scheduled posts over the weekend so if you see one of your shares and you aren’t thanked (yeah, I went back to saying who), it’s because I scheduled the post before your share. 🙂

    Husband has been helping me with posts this week. He’s handling the photo part of some posts so if they come out in an order that isn’t like I normally do it (as if you are walking through the home), patience while he is learning. 🙂

      Thanks for the details, Kelly. Makes me appreciate the strides made in improving children’s medical care. Or did he pass in an accident? But glad the house still stands.

      And hoping your toothache is gone, gone, gone.

        Yes, it is gone. 🙂

        I’m not sure how he died. I don’t know what typhoid fever does to a child’s body, perhaps his immune system never recovered. I’m glad the photo (photo postcard) exists, him and his parents are remembered 100 years later.

      Poor little guy, and sad for the parents to lose their only child.

      Ever notice that houses in old photos seem to look larger than they do in modern pics? Something to do with old camera lenses probably.

        Couldn’t agree more Gwen. There are VERY few changes I would make to that house if it was mine. It needs a good exterior once over; and just a bit of this and that inside. The one thing I would change would be to fully extend the upper porch to the side to make a real double gallery. 🙂

      Lovely Park Ave. house and how about that brick paved street! I lived right across the river from the Leeper Park house in a 1904 Queen Anne, back in 2002-04. You can’t beat the historic homes in South Bend, most are incredibly well preserved. Thanks for this one, good pick.

        Bet there’s some good old hardwood floors. What a lovely house — I’d be very careful about any changes to the kitchen, love it as it is. The whole house, in fact. It personifies the midwest — open & friendly and solid. Hope its future is as loved as its past.

        Not surprised at that price peewee: and less than 48 hrs. on the market too. I’ll bet a nickel it has multiple offers and ends up closing WELL over $200K. The owner was S M A R T SMART to list right before summer, and well below market. THAT kind of advice is the mark of an agent worth their salt. Get it sold and sell it big! 🙂

      Jeez Sharon, you just made my day with that PHENOMENAL 2nd St. house. Thank You! 1866 seems a little early for such VERY FINE Aesthetic period carvings and embellishments; and magic windows didn’t appear until later as well. Hard to tell what exactly changed between that date and +or- 1885; but it most certainly did change for the better, regardless. Such remarkably fine wood, glass, tile, and metal work throughout is a joy to behold. Room after room full of the finest decorative details. Thank you agent for a great peek into the attic; and the very successful listing presentation over all. I would like to beg for more, but that is a tired old song no one listens to anyway. Much interior fabulousness is missing since it’s late 19th century decorative apex, but I can imagine it all in my head, and it is a wonder! Thanks’ again. 🙂

      The Bishopville house has been on the market for awhile. It has come down in price, and really not sure why someone hasn’t purchased it!
      It’s on a lovely lot, setback from the street. Bishopville is a very small sleepy old cotton town, actually has the “Cotton Museum” in the midlands of SC. It is quite close to Florence, which has the large USC medical complex, and Darlington which has the NASCR raceway. Also, only 15 miles from Camden.
      It’s a stunning home, and hasn”t been mucked with.

        I wonder if the tower leaked so they removed it. I seem to remember someone, maybe on OHD, talking about how difficult it was to keep wet at bay in their tower. Took unflagging repair and maintenance. Copper ceiling is nice, I agree.

    I’m around the corner from this house and it makes me sad all the time. I have no idea what it looks like on the inside, but listing says “unsafe.” I believe it b/c a couple windows were broken (so animals could get inside) and there are a few holes in the roof and walls. The beam supporting the porch looks cracked and rotten. The yard, until recently when the city cleaned it up, was filled with junk. I think the owner is/was a bit of a hoarder. That said, it’s kind of an awesome beast of a house. The stone is in really good shape, the roof and siding are slate (which makes it look like fish scales!) and I’m hoping one of the more responsible home builders/flippers in the area will keep as much of it intact as possible. I’m not gonna hold my breath though. Mt. Rainier is the last, close-in to DC neighborhood where it’s still “affordable” to buy (by DC standards.) The realtor we had, who lived in the area for 20 years, had never heard of it before we found our house. We were on the front-end of a wave of young families that found it. It’s close to DC and to the University of MD. It’s a big lot, but…250K seems high if it’s a teardown.

        If you’re looking in MD, in the DC area, Rt 1 from DC through College Park, or elsewhere in PG County is the most “affordable.” It has a bit of a bad rep, but that’s been changing quickly, especially inside the beltway. We lucked out on our house, but I had to put in the offer w/o my wife ever having seen it b/c she was taking care of a family member in another state and I knew we’d lose it if we didn’t move quickly. 3 other people bid the same day we did (2nd day on the market), but we had an escalation clause that did the trick. The first time my wife saw the house was inspection! It’s our first home. Talk about a test of your marriage! I thought, “She’ll either love it, or she’ll divorce me. No middle ground.”

      I wonder if they had to add the turnbuckles because they removed a good part of the second floor to open up the living room and add that fireplace – without something to hold it together, I imagine the structure would be severely undermined. Another reason not to mess with a great old place…

    I see so many beautiful homes that everyone is finding towards the Eastern side of the USA. I thought I would give everyone sticker shock on the Lake Tahoe area prices on older homes:

    This whole area of Zephyr Cove and the water at Lake Tahoe is absolutely beautiful:

        I believe, Cathy, we’ve seen this more than once before. I loved it the first time, then it was off market, then back on with a lower price. It has wonderful early paneling, and the whole house is so inviting.

      I think houses absorb the events they shelter and this seems a happy place. It’s a very pretty home — and I mean “home” rather than “house” because all houses are not home-like. Looks like much work went into it; it’s pristine & so inviting. I’m sure current market prices would knock your parents over compared to what they probably paid in the 40s, good for at least a chuckle. The garden is lovely — makes one want to stroll out there & sit for a while.

        Laurie, I like your comment….. I’ve certainly felt both positive or negative energies while visiting a house for the first time. Funny, but even on this site with all the places we visit, some just radiate, “home.” Others, not so much, or not at all. And I don’t believe it’s simply bad photography or condition.

        Thanks Laurie W…… it absolutely astounds me how opulent these houses (and others we see on OHD) are. And the size of most of them..!! Big was important I guess, both for large families and to exemplify the owner’s sphere of influence. I love the Boothbay house, and they have many wonderful antiques. I always enjoy looking at the furnishings, no matter the period.

    I’ve got a few designs up. I’ve been so nervous about it, I’m going to do a slow announcement and see how it goes.

    For shirts, when you click on one from the OHD storefront, see the option for different sizes, different clothing options and colors (I’ve titled them dark and light so you’ll know the difference, if you want a dark blue tshirt click the dark color design of your choice.)

    If you pick a different clothing option (like long sleeve instead of short), pay attention to the actual design in the preview. For instance, if you were to pick a polo shirt or a long sleeve Henley, the design will be ridiculously small on the pocket rather than the full front or back so PAY ATTENTION to the design when browsing their shirt options.

    Design wise, I only have a couple of shirt designs, many postcards, couple of totes, a stamp and a mug. More will eventually come, I’m just testing the waters to see what people think and if it’ll be worth spending time designing more.

    I apologize at the prices, I’m making anywhere from .03-.98 per order so it’s not a huge amount over what Zazzle already charges. At check out, I suggest subscribing to Zazzle black for a year if you think you’ll order more things.

    ALWAYS use a coupon code when ordering! They don’t give me any to give out but they always advertise them at the top of their site. Right now it’s 15% off with ZWEEKENDFUNZ . Or if you are not subscribed to their newsletter, visit the front page of Zazzle (without adblock) and subscribe to Zazzle insiders newsletter for 20% off your first order.

    One of the shirts, reader Sharon gave me the idea for it.

Wish you got more of a cut, though.

        What a dichotomy…!! The superior design elements of the interior makes me wonder about the originality of the exterior. I’m in love with the lavender bathroom……even the faucets are lavender. I’ve never seen that before. And the floors, paneling, and light fixtures are fabulous. I hope whoever gets this house truly appreciates the whole package.

      Not even an hour ago did I tell my husband “Goal for the week, post one home in every state…except Hawaii, Alaska and maybe Nevada because they are so hard to find anything in.” Well, now you’ve filled the Nevada post for the week! 🙂 Want to find us something for Hawaii and Alaska? lol

    On our way back from FL this morning, my hubby and I did some driving around the very oldest parts of Macon, GA, looking for a couple of record stores. I was on OHD overload. So many streets full of intricate, detailed, historic Victorian cottages (and some historic mansions)… many boarded up, sitting empty, decaying for decades. Like this one. Hundreds of them. This one has a story. I’m sure they all do.

    Does anyone have more pics of this house. The real estate agent refuses to send more than the few that are listed online. The homeowner is apparently worried that someone will break in and steal a staircase and some windows….is that something you have to worry about in this town? You go to church and come back to discover your stairs to the 2nd floor missing? The online crime statistics for this town say no.

    It is no wonder this home has been for sale for so many years. This is a home that obviously is not going to sell locally or it would have by now. The real estate agent should be looking for out of state buyers.

    Even though I am interested in this house, I don’t want to take 2 flights across the country and rent a car to see it when a a few pics would let me know if this is a project I want to tackle.

    If you could email them to me. I can assure you that they won’t find their way online.

          Yeah, I kind of liked how it was before and the reason I’ll probably not repost. But maybe it’s more of a cosmetic thing, they did clean it up nicely. Use different colors or some fantastic wallpaper and it may tone down how new it looks. Edit: A second look, yeah it’s just the cosmetics I didn’t care for (and maybe the kitchen.) Just think of how great it would be with the floors refinished and some muted wallpaper in that main hallway. Edit Edit: I hate being negative toward the work they’ve done to it, it’s just an easy change on the colors so I don’t mean to be dismissive of everything they’ve worked on.

      If I were a broker, I would require all my agents to take at least one architectural history class…… this one is so not 18th century. But they probably meant 1800s.

    How often does a spiral staircase like this become available for $125,000? And the house looks move-in ready…amazing for the price!

    My favorite house in my neighborhood in Seattle just came on the market. I went through it a few years ago and it was all wood – now all white paint and a huge increase in price.

    This looks like a Craftsman to me, but I really don’t know enough to determine if it really is. It’s a 1914 bungalow in Portland. To me all it needs is a good clean up and a paintjob.

      Looks like it needs more than paint. I see water/mold issues, therefore may need a new roof and there could be hidden rot as well. It’s in pretty rough shape for $499,000. But it could be a cute house again with the investment.

    Was SUPER excited to see this one hit the market today. If you’ve ever driven out Rockville Rd. in Indianapolis even once, and you’re an old house spotter, you’ll for sure know this house. Was Thrilled to see how relatively original the interior remains, (and with a great vintage kitchen too). On two acres with a great barn = A+!

    Build date says 1884; I am thinking more like 1920. Kind of a simple little place with potential to be super cute. I love that it has a little library. That room would be my landing place in the winter. 🙂

    Hi all! This is the house that I grew up in. Built in the early 1920’s by one of the Griesedick brothers (brewers back in the day) as a wedding gift for his daughter, it has wonderful wide woodwork, beautiful hardwood floors, 2 sets of pocket doors, a second floor balcony and 3 floor to ceiling built in cupboards. It has been remuddled a bit and all of the hand painted frosted glass bedroom lights replaced with ceiling fans, but I just LOVE my old home. Needs lots of love but it’s a great neighborhood in a town famous for Buddy Ebson (Jed Clampett), Jimmy Connors (tennis star) and Stag beer, within 30 minutes of St. Louis. The photos are pretty poor quality and very limited in number. PLEASE, someone buy and fix up this lovely old gem!!
