    Today’s old photo is a postcard of the old Allegany County Jail. I do not know the location but believe it no longer stands.

    All the back says is: Mr. Harold A. Turner 706 Washington St, Olean, NY and was mailed from Belmont, NY in 1908.

          Oh wait, I didn’t private it yet just put it in my “DO NOW” (as in “DO WHEN I FEEL LIKE IT”) folder. The previous photos evoked a better mood than the new ones: https://www.oldhousedreams.com/2018/06/13/1907-bee-branch-ar/

            You are right the old pictures are much better !! I love the barn. You can tell the house has ad some good times and as the fallen soldier flag suggests some bad times too. The old pics help tell the history very well.

              Indeed, I’m tempted to repost with a new one and leave a link to the old pics. That’s one reason I’m slow to update posts when it comes to new photos, hard to replace the good ones with less than great.

                I definitely think its worth a repost. It has a really wonderful down home feel and that flag really tugs at my heart. Great Americana vibe.

                I love it but I definitely think I like the old photos best. I wouldn’t change a thing. That kitchen would have to stay just the way it is.

  2. RonnieH says: 61 comments

    Ashland, Oregon, built in 2002, of course, not an old house, but these people definitely dumped some money into it. I have to say, in my opinion, they did a decent job. $4.5 million

    Hello and Happy Friday, everyone! 🙂

    409 Main St, Collins, IA 50055
    4 beds, 3 baths, 3,135 sq ft
    $188,000
    1918 brick bungalow
    I love the woodwork in this place! For the most part it is unpainted, although one bedroom has been given the “neutral color” treatment and I would have to fix that to uncover the window seat and closet. I’ve never seen a built-in clock before, either.

    Kansas City, MO 64111
    2 beds, 1 bath
    $135,000
    1930, Condo
    Really nice unpainted built-ins and a fireplace. As far as condos go, this one has a lot of character.

    Okmulgee, OK 74447
    6 beds 3 baths 3,970 sqft
    $136,900
    1921
    The more I look at this one the more I like it. Most of the woodwork is unpainted (a big plus IMO!) and while I wouldn’t have arranged the stove exhaust that way, there are original cabinets and a drainboard sink in the kitchen. Also, does anyone know what the storage is meant to be in photo 33? Blanket chests?

    5 beds 4 baths 3,621 sqft
    $70,000
    1902, Prairie Style
    For me this house hits that sweet spot of needing help but showing tons of potential. I can imagine living here and stepping out one of the (many!) french doors onto the porch.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2516-Broadway-St-Little-Rock-AR-72206/317125_zpid/?fullpage=true

    1800 N Monroe St, Little Rock, AR 72207
    3 beds 2 baths 1,528 sqft
    $249,900
    Storybook style (?), 1930
    I’m not sure if this would be considered Tudor or Storybook style, but it’s got a lot of potential. I love the vaulted ceiling in the main room and the green and yellow tiled bathroom especially.

    230 Arnold Ave
    Greenville, MS 38701
    4 beds 2 baths 2,550 sqft
    $165,000
    From me: White paint warning! All the white paint has broken my natural wood loving heart, but even still you can see how beautiful the woodwork is in this one.
    From the realtor: “RARE EXAMPLE OF “KIT HOME” or CATALOG HOUSE” IN AMERICAN FOURSQUARE CRAFTSMAN STYLE, CIRCA 1912. INCREDIBLE ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES: BEAMED 9 FOOT CEILINGS, RAISED PANELING, WAINSCOTING, COLUMNS, 6 FIREPLACES, ANTIQUE TILES, PUTNAM ROLLING LADDER, GARDEN.”

    1001 Jackson St
    Vicksburg, MS 39183
    4 beds 3 baths 3,864 sqft
    $299,000
    This house has a lot of nice features, but it’s been on Zillow for a while and I’ll admit I’m posting it because of the sink in photo #7. I’ve never seen a sink like this one before – does anyone know if they were common at one point?
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1001-Jackson-St-Vicksburg-MS-39183/78104008_zpid/?fullpage=true

    P.S. I hope posting this many links isn’t wearing out my welcome.

      Thank you so much for posting again Laura; you did a great job! In fact, I’m going to modify the way I post in the share a little bit because I like the way you did it BETTER. 🙂 All the houses you posted are spot on for OHD interest; and we’re lucky to have you as a new contributor.

      Three of the houses really peaked my interest. I’ll start at the bottom with the Vicksburg house. It’s a FINE, solid place for sure. The sink and mirror you mentioned ARE in fact VERY rare; not common at all. I remember seeing one unit like that YEARS ago. The gas and electric sconces hint at the fixtures which would originally have been found throughout the house. GOD FORBID they were only recently removed in favor of the current batch of home center horrors.

      I’d say you hit an OHD home run with 2516 Broadway. That ticks every box Kelly likes for posting a house. The front porch details are even very interesting. Those beefy piers which encase the front steps with their super cool Deco details and very nice Prairie urns are ESPECIALLY rad!

      My favorite of the bunch is for sure 409 Main Collins, IA. That’s a fantastic house; and it’s interesting in a variety of ways. I have seen built in clocks, but never one like that which is in effect a long case clock. It’s interesting to see a fine feature like that in a house which was otherwise obviously done on a budget. I believe the trim is all A grade pine; and the paneling is A grade plywood! There is a lot more to say about that one. I hope it gets posted!

      Nice group, my fave maybe being the Tudor/Storybook one. I didn’t mind so many listings in one post because you explained each one. That helped me to decide if I wanted to open each link.

      I believe each of your choices were either lovely or interesting, Laura! Thanks for finding all of them. I liked the yellow and green bathroom in the storybook house and am intrigued by why the Jackson St. has hasn’t sold. But I found something to love in each house you showed.

      I love the California Victorians, so intricately designed to be able to show status and wealth on small city lots. It is so sad they are a dying breed. Too many peoples idea of having a historic home is the curb appeal but when you step inside it’s like Star Trek. Don’t get me wrong, I might enjoy living in an ultra futurist home with a cool design probably as much as an old Victorian, but not both just pick one, build a new home if you want futuristic…

      https://www.coldwellbankerhomes.com/southern-california/4431-23-st-street/pid_25866494/

      This house survived two apocalyptic earthquakes and a fire that destroyed more the than half the city and then someone did this! Looks like a couple of the rooms are savable but this home has lost allot and I’ve seen allot worse here in San Francisco.

      • Hoyt Clagwell says: 214 comments

        Tastes vary–there’s a lot here I like, and nothing I find egregiously offensive. It looks like the front rooms of the house have been retained and restored, and the alterations/additions are kept to the rear and downstairs portions, where there may not have been anything worth retaining. The bay window/sunroom on the back is interesting, attractive inside and out, and capitalizes on the light and views wonderfully, and actually fits in as a continuation of a certain San Francisco vernacular as has been adapted through the decades.

        Other than a couple of minor and easily changed aesthetic preferences and some functional tweaking to the kitchen, I think the house is lovely.

        Kyle, I get you… totally! Since the advent of HGTV, soSoSOOOO many of the beautiful old homes in CA have been modified/sterilized! I just moved back to the midwest (Chicago area…although I’m from Defiance OH) after moving from Defiance in 2000 to Sacramento because (among other things) I missed the “oldness” of here. As a Nurse specialist, I traveled all over the Bay area and that afforded me the opportunity to see some of the great homes in SFO, etc. and every time I would see one for sale I would look it up on realtor.com and so often was disappointed that the outside would look like a lovely Victorian or queen anne or craftsman but the inside was totally homogenized to HGTV standards. I’m down for people living in an environment that makes them feel happy and I respect that we all have different tastes but when I see allllllll The charm and character that must’ve once existed just totally ripped out, it makes my heart break a little! 😪 It almost seems disrespectful. on the other hand, as far as this property goes I have to agree with Hoyt to some degree… Victorians can be very dark and the one thing about the San Francisco area that so gorgeous is the light. I can see in this property they had some respect for what existed but they wanted to open it up to capture that beautiful San Francisco light!

            I believe it! I found this site when we were house hunting and it was the first one I checked every morning during our search. Although I didn’t find mine here, it was featured on the main page after we put our offer in. I was quite excited about that – made me feel like my search went well 🙂 I think this site is a great resource and have shared quite a few links with fellow enthusiasts who were also looking.

            I’m quite familiar with Westerville and Deleware. I lived in Columbus and it’s suburbs for eighteen years. There’s many older homes in and around Columbus but it’s often tricky to find them untouched by the trend of the moment and in the right neighborhood. You are definitely right about Findlay. There’s always something interesting there!

      In picture #3 of the depot, in the background there is a bridge which seems to just end. Am I seeing this correctly?

      • Cathy F.Cathy F. says: 1476 comments

        Lol, looked that to me at first, too! What a cantilever! And nasty surprise for drivers.

        But… if you enlarge the photo, you can see that a tree/greenery obscures part of the bridge on the right side – where it appears to abruptly end, and you can then *just* see more of the bridge to the right of that tree, where it keeps on going in normal fashion.

    I believe this one has been on OHD at least once over the years: but that may have just been a similar house. The seemingly pointless, (no pun), pyramidal roof structure is curious.

    The +or- 1890 Victorian alterations are some top quality work, and a huge addition to this one IMO. Aside from the porches, the gorgeous front entry, and a few other interior Victorian updates; MUCH of the original detail remains intact, albeit encased in paint. 🙁

    This character filled Vicky has been divided into a multi probably back in the 50’s and was done well. Restore to a single or share and earn income; either way this one has GOBS of potential and TONS of character. All of the 60’s built in’s are a bit much, but they are quality, and I’d have a hard time ripping most of them out. I’m pretty sure this 1875 house had an extensive, early Victorian update and expansion. This is a PERFECT spot for a retiree! You will not find a nicer, cleaner, safer, friendlier, cuter, spot than delightful little Goshen, IN.

    1969 Regency
    Nashville, TN

    Happy Friday! A few interesting 20th century finds for you to peruse while fantasizing about fall. Apologies if some have already been shared.

    1. A wonderful 1939 beam-construction cabin in New Hampshire with what appears to be a partially original kitchen. This is one of those perfect get-away homes that set designers in Hollywood’s golden era were emulating when designing country homes for the movies. Even the street address sounds fictional. First time ever on the market.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/286-Blueberry-Ridge-Rd-Newport-NH-03773/86870086_zpid/?fullpage=true

    2. A slightly Tudor-ish 1924 home in Rochester NY with charming stair hall and Dutch door entry. The living room features a lovely box bay window and that cool paneling color that nobody seems to be able to replicate today. No pictures of the kitchen, which always makes me optimistically hope that it’s original! https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/56-Oak-Ln-Rochester-NY-14610/30904296_zpid/?fullpage=true

    3. An elegant 1961 Uber-ranch in Canton, OH with four(!) bay windows and (again) that paneling color that seems impossible to recreate (but that I love). Maybe it’s the camera lense, but the rooms seem vast. Sad that nobody builds single story ranch homes like this anymore. Everything now has to have a second floor with an OTT stair entry way.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/3885-Croydon-Dr-NW-Canton-OH-44718/35282391_zpid/?fullpage=true

    4. Another cool Tudor-ish home, this one in Massilon, OH circa 1925. Lovely large crown moldings (some painted an unfortunate shocking yellow). There is a lovely carved stone fireplace and what appear to be original light fixtures in the pretty dining room. This kitchen is old, but not original. I’ve never seen brickwork like that employed here on those porch supports. The bricklayer did a master job mitering the “buttress” to the porch support.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1051-Wales-Rd-NE-Massillon-OH-44646/35220234_zpid/?fullpage=true

    5. A 1954 MCM in Pepper Pike which features finishes that appear much more commercial than one typically finds in residential MCM homes. Can’t tell if the acoustical tile and floor tiles are original, but I wouldn’t mind replacing the floor tile with something warmer/heartier. Plenty of sunlight with all these windows.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/6-Pepper-Ridge-Rd-Pepper-Pike-OH-44124/58562706_zpid/?fullpage=true

    6. An art deco beauty from Indianapolis. I wouldn’t be surprised if this one’s been shared already, because it’s pretty amazing. With a 1946 build date, I have to wonder if the construction was put on hold pending the end of WWII; It looks like something from a decade earlier. I think the original kitchen may have been expanded to include the section containing that rather interesting free-standing fireplace.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/5845-High-Fall-Rd-Indianapolis-IN-46226/1137808_zpid/?fullpage=true

    7. FLW purportedly had a hand in this Indiana 1957 MCM beauty in dire need of a rescue. Rosewater – you need to buy this place and fix it up, STAT. However, price doesn’t leave a lot of room for updates and capital appreciation!

      I love the two Tudor-ish houses! I think I would choose the Rochester one (the study alone is great, and the yard is so nice, just for starters!), but would prob have to do walk-throughs to make up my mind for sure.

      I love the New Hampshire cabin. My grandparents lived in New Hampshire and also had their dining table in front of the window just like this home. There’s nothing like seeing those Mountain views every time you sit at the table and seeing the seasons change in NH is amazing.

      I also love the interior of the ranch home. I wouldn’t change a thing!

      1875 Italianate cottage
      Noblesville, IN

      Good lord Steven, are you trying to get me ruined? Heheheh. 😉 I am not Tom Hanks; nor am I Shelly Long; so I will be taking a pass on the “Money Pit” down in Greenwood. I hate to tell that agent, but the time for that super fabulous, rare, not Frank, house to hit the market was five or so years ago before the entire roofing system failed allowing water to flow and mold to grow and essentially ruining the place. I don’t know what land values are currently in Greenwood, (not that much – untillable), but that’s what this place should be priced for; certainly not $600K for a ruin. A damn shame is what it is. It aint Frank, but it aint half bad either; sans endemic black mold.

    • Karen I says: 133 comments

      My jaw literally dropped when I saw the house in Greenwood, Indiana (the FLW inspired home). I grew up in Greenwood. Actually the steep price is right for that house in that condition. Greenwood went from a country town to a very “hoity toity” area over the 35 years I lived there.

    • jillieD says: 25 comments

      I agree. Beautiful sink!

    • jillieD says: 25 comments

      I love the MCM in Greenwood! But a half million $$ for an extreme fixer-upper? Pl-lease! But what a great house!

    Hi, everyone – this first house just came on the market today. Tho it says it was built in 1790 it may be 40 – 50 years older than that. The family who built it and whose descendants still lived there as recently as this year moved to this property in the 1740s. I am not sure if there was another house there before this one. The stone was likely quarried right on the property or very close by. While on a busy street it is set nicely back from the road and there is a tall wooden fence along the road. Expensive but a very historic property:

      I can’t get this one out of my head. I am dying to see it. Talk about old house dreaming. I even e-mailed the realtor, but alas no response. We’re going to Indiana (from Clearwater, FL) in October and I’m wondering if I can con my husband into driving to this house. For that price, though, it is probably more of a disaster inside than I can imagine. Ah, but dreaming.

      Some tour guides still tell their gullible patrons that the houses of rainbow row were painted these distinct colors so that 18th century drunken sailors could remember which house to stumble back to after a night of debauchery. While it is true that East Bay street did once mark the waterfront, these houses weren’t painted in these varying pastel shades until a 1930’s restoration, long after the marsh had been filled in. This particular house is known as either the green house or the Pinckney House after it’s most famous owner, C.C. Pinckney, who represented SC at the Constitutional Convention. It’s the only house on Rainbow Row with a Flemish Gable front elevation.

      I was astonished by the price of the Pittsburgh mansion until I got to the 2nd and 3rd floors. It’s an amazing bargain if you don’t need all that space. What a gorgeous renovation! I guess they ran out of steam or money. I’d love to buy it and finish it. Really amazing house.

    1920. Big, beautiful home in the OBX. Great history, described in the listing. The ocean virtually in the backyard…and THAT porch…*sigh*

    No links to post here. I’m hoping someone can help me remember something.

    Sometime 1–3 years ago, I read about a small pocket neighborhood that was developed in the early half of the 20th century in a city I believe in the Northeast. This neighborhood had english style cottages arranged around a central courtyard, but the only thing was it was all elevated a level (including the courtyard) to create a drive-under garage for each house. The house at the end of this “fake english village” was much larger and castle-like. Is this ringing any bells for anyone? I completely forgot where it was.

      Thanks Michele! The first one with the pretty gable and porch detail caught my eye many years ago when I lived out that way, forgotten until now. Although a sadly neglected foreclosure at this point, the house appears completely fixable, and a manageable project for someone who really loves it. It’s a small miracle that so much of the original in still intact, just waiting for an old house whisperer to come along.

      The Hickory St house in Iowa Falls is certainly unique. While the addition added square footage, it certainly doesn’t fit the style of the original house. Too bad.

    Realtor.com has made a change to their links, not all but many. If you see this at the end of the link: ?view=qv , give it a second to load because at first it’ll show search results but then the page will pop up that you want to see. I did notice that a couple of links with that at the end showed a listing I looked at right before and not the home linked to, I’m not sure why it did that yet. Just giving you a heads up, give it a second before saying the link isn’t working. 🙂

The scenes filmed in Pugin’s masterpiece, 1850, Gothic drawing room were especially decadent; crackling fire in it’s sublime fireplace and all. Hope the show get’s renewed. It was pretty good.

    Someone suggested I do before/after of homes bought. The problem is not everyone that buys a home knows their home is on OHD or if they do, doesn’t tell us. The best I can do with before/after are Google Street Views or relisted homes but I usually just say in comments and delete the post from the site. BUT, I’m going to do this from now on for OHD Supporters, update the post with the afters and keep it on the site. Because not everyone subscribed to new comments in posts are not OHD Supporters, I felt the need to close comments on private posts or else they’d receive an email of a new comment and click but receive a 404 page and that would be annoying. I’ll include the page in the Before/After category and give a link in the latest link exchanges.

        1889 Eastlake Cottage
        Fort Worth, TX

        Even though the narrative describes the Roueche House as “Built in 1899 by the local Meadville builders, the Roueche brothers and Albert A. Huttelmayer, 762 Park Avenue was a full-size model of their building ad.” This well known and very popular design is by Knoxville, TN, mail order architect, George F. Barber. Examples of this design can be found from California (Alameda) to New York (Rochester) with other examples in-between. (like the Parish House B&B in Calvert, TX) Therefore, while the historical information about the builders is likely accurate, the house plan design came from Barber. What makes this house even more interesting is that the brightly colored next door neighbor appears to be a Geo. Barber design as well. (streetview: https://goo.gl/maps/4s5kk6bTczk ) I wish there were interior photos but the listing explains it has been divided up into apartments, a common practice in college towns like Meadville. Some stained glass is visible from streetview so perhaps the house remains relatively intact inside. A computer repair firm is also listed at this address. I’ll have to add Meadville to my list of places to visit someday as 19th century architecture appears to be abundant around the town. Thank you very much for sharing!

            Thanks for the additional information, John. Looks like a landlord is cashing out his or her rental properties. Thankfully, they are priced at a level that probably precludes continued rental use but there’s nothing to prevent a developer type from buying the properties, taking out a demo permit, (or better, moving the houses off the lots) and redeveloping the lots as Park Avenue appears to be changing more in the direction of commercial use. If any or all of these houses were mine, I’d tone down the two Barber designs with a more period correct color scheme. Seldom does one of the larger and more popular Barber designed homes come on the market. (and at that price)

      • SARA VANDYKE says: 10 comments

        I’m not sure! Very possibly. It went up for sale earlier this summer. We put in an offer but couldn’t go above their asking price and ultimately got beat out by another offer. We moved on and then the house went back on the market after the original sale fell through. It needs a little work inside but has so many original features and the barn is to die for. The property would make an amazing wedding venue (there’s already a bathroom outside and a bar in the garage).
