    What a fun project this would be if only I was younger. With this many square feet, you would think it would have a more dramatic stairway. I like this house anyway.

    Lovely Italianate with beautiful unpainted millwork under darkened-with-age shellac. Cleaned up, the millwork/trim would probably gleam and be much lighter in color/tone. I love unspoiled houses like this example because everything remains for a full and faithful restoration. The wrap around front porch is a later (turn of the last century) addition. I think the small back side porch with the Chinese Chippendale type fretwork is closer to the original porch that was on the front. I too would remove the dropped down ceilings and re-route utilities as necessary. This house is only a short block away from North Perkins Street which has the best collection of historic homes in Rushville. I took a few photos of the town a couple of years ago: https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/albums/72157679272557468 Rushville is about 45 miles southeast of Indianapolis, IN. Great priced house here with lots of potential.

  4. I’m the new owner – never had much money to work on houses but after my divorce and Coronavirus it’s been harder. Hoping to put a new roof on this spring and begin renovation. Any advise is helpful. Am thinking about trying to have it put on the National Register. Fortunately the historical society is litterally one house away down the street. I can’t do much – I wish I could save all of these old gems – but hopefully I can at least save this one.
