    When there’s enough original features left it’s “easier” to backdate than having to start all over finding period doors, windows, etc.

    Has this been on OHD before? Or maybe it’s just similar to others I’ve posted in Indiana of the same type of build.

    What part of the house is picture 5 & 6? Confused as to the layout. I really like the looks of the front of the house.

    Great house to start the day! The updates wouldn’t work for me, since, as soon as I saw the exterior, I thought this could be my own Barton Cottage. I would do the whole interior in Georgian simplification with light historical paint colors and chandeliers in every room. I wish there was a photo of the entrance hall and staircase. The pretty exterior just needs a face wash. I like the brick path to the back door too.

    The front of this property looks as if it’s been lifted from the English countryside and transplanted to Indiana. So much to like about this one.

    I love this one! I’d kill to see a historical photo. I’d totally backdate the interior and put a porch back if there was one. Why, why, why don’t they show the staircase!? That’s what sells me on a house.

    The Indiana SHAARD database calls this a vernacular I-house with Federal Style details, built of brick locally produced by the owner. Until very recently, there was an early 20th Century portico with 6 full-height square columns.

    Old maps show this as the 600+ acre farm of Samuel Ross (1812-1882), who came to the area from Ohio. The farm extended to the Big Raccoon Creek, and from the 1880’s a rail line ran along the road in front of the house. Ross married Margaret Brown in 1847; they had no children though relatives and employees lived at the house. Freeman Cox (1867-1945) owned the farm in the early 1900’s.

    Well, there’s need for a lot of elbow grease, here. I’d put that portico back. What is going on with the Grip Rite paper on the back? Were they going to side it? I’d try real hard to find matching brick for that. I wish there were more pictures, to get a better idea of the layout inside.

    I’m a sucker for all that brick. I’d have to live in that dilapidated back garage building so I could see all that exterior brick all the time! Because once inside that main house, when I looked around I’d forget why I bought it!

    Where do you start? Inside or out. The whole place needs rehabbed.Some minor, some major. When finished it would be a .beautiful home.

    Well, this old beauty has a lot to like, and deserves far better than she’s gotten lately. I’m most uncomfortable with what appears to be a new roof installed without repair to the soffits…

    I drive past this house quite often. Parke County is a beautiful place, more than 30 covered bridges, and lots of Amish have recently moved in. Someone with a great deal of money and/or time could make this into a real showplace. Too much work there for me.

    The house from a few years ago is actually in the town of Montezuma. The one just listed is between Rockville and Clinton, about 10 miles from the first house.
