    Wonder why someone gave up on the furnace installation? I’m pretty sure the new owner will want heat and AC. Foreclosure maybe?

    I wish there were more photos, even if there is damage. Kitchen, garage interior, bathrooms…

    This appears to be a potentially lovely house – to allude to fire damage and then not provide more inclusive photos is very short-sighted on the part of the realtor. A serious buyer – possibly not in the nearby area – would surely want a better idea of the extent of the damage up front… Withholding informative photos only wastes everyone’s time – especially the realtor’s!

      That is true. We have traveled to see houses only to find there is something the photos left out, or that there is something nearby that you will not know about even with an aerial view. What looked like potentially being a hospital was in fact, a prison when we did a “drive by” of a house once.

    When I see old houses like I me of this age, I wish there was more of the original land left to it. Even just a few acres! From what I see here, this house is saveable.

    From an 1882 biography of John Walter (1808-1884), a 4th generation American who with wife Bithynia Stotler, built this house and raised their family here:

    John Walter, the eldest son of Philip and Catherine (Trout) Walter, was born Feb. 13, 1808, in Salem township, on the farm now owned by Jacob Moat. He was married Feb. 26, 1833, to Bithynia, daughter of Henry and Catherine Stotler, of Allegheny County. She was born June 9, 1813, and died Feb. 6, 1880 …

    John Walter learned the blacksmith and edge-tool trade with John Steel, and for thirty-seven years carried on this business with great success, both in Allegheny and this county. He purchased the farm on which he resides, known as the old Kirkpatrick farm, in 1832. It was then nearly all in woods, but in 1838 he moved on to it, built a log house, and began clearing it up. In 1848 he erected his present brick residence, just south of Oakland Cross-Roads.

    Mr. Walter and his family are connected with the Poke Run Presbyterian Church, of which he is a trustee. He is a good example of the thrift of the old German stock that settled in Pennsylvania in the past century, and from no capital but his own resolute will and energy has made his life a success, and established a good name among his fellow-citizens.
