    Always look at the Link section up top, it’s where I’ll put anything interesting like the Indiana Landmarks article from 2016.

      What a perfect project. The “heavy lifting” projects are already done and it’s waiting for a new owners personal touch and restoration. I wish I could find a home like this in Okc.

    Swoon and “sigh”. I read the article; I sure wish there was a picture of the house as it looked 100 years ago. Absolutely delicious even today. I’m so glad it was saved from demolition.

    I cannot find adequate words to express my admiration for the preservation efforts put forth by the Indiana Landmarks Foundation. I’ve personally known two of the foundation’s regional directors, one in Wabash IN and another down south in New Albany across the Ohio River from Louisville, KY. Huntington has been through up and down economic challenges in recent years resulting in some of its historic homes selling for far less than one might anticipate. In Indianapolis, a house like this might fetch a quarter million depending on the location. Finding any decent 3,000+ sq. foot livable home for less than a hundred grand is usually considered a major bargain. The brick two bay garage is another unexpected bonus. Although purists might sneer at this Italianate that appears to have been “Queen Anne’d” around the turn of the last century, I believe the later details are certainly worth keeping. The 2017 taxes are only $780 which in Indiana are the lowest in the Midwest. Someone is going to get the deal of a lifetime here and hopefully, can transform this house into the beautiful historic home its meant to be.

    I hate when people put the idea that being in a “historic district” or on a “historic register” is a negative. There are so many pluses for not only a home but for the neighborhoods that are lucky enough to be in historic districts. Most people have a lot of pride in their historic homes. Each area is different as far as what the is expected but for the most part a lot are just common sense.

      I have seen historic districts work both ways. The one I currently reside in is returning to “Slum Status” because nobody that would be interested in moving here has the money to follow historic guidelines. Other districts have done well because they were located in much smaller areas than mine, and had the money to “recreate” victorian neighborhoods using houses that were moved in from other areas of town. Our historic district takes up a third of the city, and in that space, only about 15 houses are really anything special. Most of the rest are just infill, rentals, or vacant. Sad:(
