    Today’s old house photo comes from somewhere. 🙂 Reminds me of the camp meeting cottages, so perhaps from one of the many of those.

    I forgot last weeks people photo. I don’t know anything about these people but this capture of smiles makes me wish time travel was a thing, they’d probably be shocked that we are looking at them 100+ years later. Disclaimer: the people don’t have anything to do with the house photo, just a new thing I’m doing because why not.

    Link share tips: Zillow, just be sure the address is shown in the link or else we may not see what you see. How to get the link? Either search that specific address (Google or Zillow itself) or if in their search, right click to open the home in a new tab to get the address link. Realtor.com, make sure the address is in the link but if you see this at the end of the link: ?view=qv

    delete that part of the link else it either won’t load for folks visiting your link or it’ll just load so slow they won’t think the link works. Redfin is best (is anybody else annoyed they got rid of their state search? Grrr.) These are just guidelines, not set in stone rules. Just always remember to leave the price, build date and give us an idea what you are linking to.

    Howdy folks! Long time no see!

    The exterior of this one is just amazing. The inside is obviously a work in progress but this place has a lot of potential. I have no idea what architectural style/era it is. Build date 1869:

    Good morning!

    Not a house, but a cool blog I found: https://montanahistoriclandscape.com/

    Tons of info and pictures of Montana’s old houses, buildings, and towns. Have fun exploring!

    And Kelly, I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to support this site, and reap the benefits! I spent time yesterday digging through private listings, some old favorites, some I’d not seen before. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute! Thank you!

    So… guys, make the effort to support this site! It’s absolutely worth it!

      Thank you! 🙂

      When I was little I told people I wanted to move to Montana when I grew up (or sometimes it was Iowa or the Dakotas.) One of these days I hope to at least visit, the scenery on the site you shared is a good reason why Montana is still on my mind. 🙂

      MI

      A good friend lives in Montana, in the mountains around Wolf Creek, she has 300 acres. It’s slow livin but not real easy up there alone, although she wouldn’t trade for anything. Cuts her own wood, heats with it, and has a back up generator for necessities. She allows hunting on her land as long as she gets some to freeze over winter. She’s a mountain woman! She sends the most beautiful pictures.

      I’m not sure, one reason I highlighted it with it’s own picture. Same with the rug looking thing on the balcony, a rug or something else?

      • JkleebJkleeb says: 284 comments
        Seattle, WA

        Here’s a guess about the rug looking thing: it might be a curtain stretcher drying frame with a colored madras lace curtain. I enlarged your enlargement as far as I could and I think I may see the the tacks along the edge for attaching the curtain. I could be totally wrong as well (the only reason I could think for placing it up on the balcony instead of the yard would be to keep it clean while it dries).
        I bought one of these on ebay a few years ago and used it to shape lace curtains for drying after they were washed. This experiment in authenticity only lasted once—it is a lot of work and hard to do without pricking your fingers on the tacks and getting blood on the curtains! I just go to the dry cleaner now.

    1893 cottage
    MS

    Good morning from Columbus, Mississippi. Some wonderful pre Civil War homes have come on the market in the last few months. Columbus was a hospital city during the war so there was not a lot of damage to this area. The Friendship cemetery here is where Memorial Day supposedly originated when the women of the town put flowers on the graves of the fallen from both sides of the conflict. I hope these will open.
    The first house is outstanding even with the “updates”. Unusual construction built 1854. Note the jib windows (windows that become doors) are open in the dining room photos. The lighting and bedroom furniture is well worth the look.
    https://www.trulia.com/p/ms/columbus/906-3rd-ave-n-columbus-ms-39701–2096709708

    The second home was built 1835(typo on listing). I served has a hostess here during a couple of
    pilgrimages. Thick brick walls, so cool and quiet. A chapel has been moved to the property in recent years.
    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/719-7th-St-N_Columbus_MS_39701_M86181-18287?ex=MS643794239&view=qv

    The third home is the Lincoln House 1833. Recent B & B. Notice the wear on the steps and the threshold.
    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/714-3rd-Ave-S_Columbus_MS_39701_M86529-61943

    Forth is a gracious old southern home from 1835. Lots of potential, fair amount of land behind the house but the home itself is almost on the street.

      Thank you for your Mississippi Marvels! I wonder what was going on in the 1830’s to account for the building os so many large houses? Seems like the residents were awfully prosperous during that time! I really love 3rd Ave house, but that bathroom may be a bit over the top for me, an original shower fast and get out and get dressed type of person! But a fantastic kitchen-love the skylight. Is it original, or added later? I also love the grounds of this house. Everything has been kept up so well-lots of work here! But, worth it. I also really like the Lincoln House. And, I love those beds!

      The content of the 2nd house (Rosewood Manor) is being sold June 7-8th by Stevens Auction Company if anyone is interested. The couple is downsizing, after living there for 40 years they are ready to turn it over to someone else to love.

    1936 Cabin

    Kelly, I like the house featured today. It somehow looks Russian to me. I think a while back someone may have posted something about Russian decorative architecture. It is great. I also like the picture of those smiling folks. I did not think candid shots were something they took back then as everyone was always looking into the camera with such stern faces.

    Here are a few I found this morning while enjoying the rain on my metal roof (always such a cozy way to wake up in the dim morning light).

    https://www.zillow.com//homedetails/687-N-Broadway-Saratoga-Springs-NY-12866/2084947406_zpid/?utm_source=email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=emo-sendtofriend-hdp&rtoken=d3db9163-4254-4bdb-ac3f-6d9510b2dc88~X1-ZUveo4kiegi2h5_46au8
    1904 Brick, 1,300,000, Saratoga Springs, NY
    On North Broadway a street known for its mansions, just a short walk from down town. This home has been the home of the Masonic Lodge since the early 1990’s. I was trying to think of the style and I see Romanesque or Gothic. While the present use is rather utilitarian, there are many great features in the structure and interior.

    1893 Stone, 4,500,000, Tuxedo Park, NY
    My first thought was this was a converted stable. It says it was built for the founder of Tuxedo Park and then remodeled in 1905 by the designers of Grand Central Station, Warren and Wetmore. Inside there is a grand domed ceiling in the living room, and mainly I am in love the tiled room and heavy stone façade.

    1895 Shingled lodge, 475,000, Forestburgh, NY
    Part of a 6800 acre private club, nothing fancy, but a fun hunting lodge with lots of natural wood indoors and an interesting elevation with wraparound porch that mimics the roof above.

    1873 Renovated Dairy Barn, 649,000, Hankins, NY
    Reminds me of the Woodstock Handmade House book I have had since a teen. Lots of unique details abound.

    1908 Queen Anne, 339,000, Cochecton, NY
    A bit busy inside for my tastes and I find the dolls a bit, well, strangely placed. But the home is filled with lots of lovely fireplaces and woodwork and the homeowner has filled it with lots of antigues. I love the built-ins in the kitchen.
    https://www.zillow.com//homedetails/260-Main-St-Goshen-NY-10924/31816090_zpid/?utm_source=email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=emo-sendtofriend-hdp&rtoken=a225af29-39ea-41ed-a5a5-8c0692a34e4d~X1-ZUveo4kiegi2h5_46au8
    1892 Brick Itailianate, 253,000, Goshen, NY
    This old home is in need of restoration and offers many lovely features, such as the paneling in the living room. I also think the tower looks pretty neat.

    Chicago, IL

    Happy Friday from Chicago!

    Here’s a house in the North Kenwood part of town. 1893, built for the owner of the Gottfried Brewing Company. I used to live nearby and out of all the exquisite old houses in the area, this one became my favorite because it’s just so grand – three stories, a coach house that has a second-story covered walkway to it from the house, a juliet balcony…and I’d never seen inside until now! It’s relatively inexpensive so I hope the new owners restore rather than replace.
    It’s too bad that the listing doesn’t have a view of the side (lengthwise) because it’s magnificent. Take a look at it on Google Maps.
    $749k.

    “Pre-1914” villa in the South Island town of Methven which is ideally located close to Mt. Hutt which many consider the best ski mountain in New Zealand. Big bay window, tall sash windows throughout and ornamental fireplaces in just about every room. Sympathetically designed modern kitchen. I used to live about 25 minutes east of Methven and it is a nice town. Mt. Hutt is stunning to look at and always has some snow on it, even in summer. It is priced at $US411,172.00.

      1900 Brick/brownstone
      Brooklyn, NY

      My parents bought this house with 10 acres in 1969 for $10,000. It was said to be a piece of land with a wreck on it. They hired the Kierstead brothers out of Hancock to restore it. I recall them saying that they’d not replaced so many sills before. They removed a second storey on the ell. I was a high school senior. I helped with some demolition, like pulling down irreparable horsehair plaster on split-lathe walls with a garden hoe, taking care to find and save the handmade nails. I learned that urine was used to retard plaster setting up. The house had a borning room. I learned the meaning of “parlor” and “living” room. The masonry was restored by an old gentleman from Antrim whose name escapes me. While this work was going on we lived in the pool house, shown with a flag in the photos. We did not have a pool. A family of six plus dog, with bunkbeds, 20 amps wired in, a big fridge, and Coleman camp stove. The cabin came from Camp Hazen in Chester, CT., which I had attended. They were replacing old cabins at the time and giving them away, so Dad got a UHaul, numbered all pieces of wood, took it apart, schlepped it to NH and put it back together. We got into the big house with heat, lights, and water in late October to wake up to about 15″ of fresh snow. Great memories. It’s a great house. Looks pretty much like when we lived there. Good luck to sellers and buyers.

    1889 Eastlake Cottage
    Fort Worth, TX

    Grand Classical Revival mansion from c. 1900 in the town of Fairmount, West Virginia (probably an old coal baron’s mansion) for a bargain $249,000: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/701-Benoni-Ave-Fairmont-WV-26554/22724349_zpid/ The materials alone would probably cost more than the asking price. Looks move in ready. This was probably the hub of local high society around the turn of the last century. The slate roof looks like it has had recent repairs so is likely sound and water tight. What a porch!!!!! WOW!

      Love the kitchen sink, I can picture listening to Count Basie while doing the evenings dishes. Perhaps I am ignorant of the climate back then, but I would certainly play it now.

      Sandy, this one is such a gem! I love everything about it inside and out. Very comfortable decor and I love the kitchen. I too could be on a permanent vacation in this home.

      In the comments about plans for the future of this property, no mention was made for restoration. I’m assuming someone in authority has already decided this formerly impressive Italianate style farmhouse is “too far gone to save”. I completely disagree but I think the decision to remove the house has already been made. Sad. This house was a true time capsule inside. Thanks for sharing.

      The Marion Carll Farm, acquired by her great great grandfather Timothy Carll in 1701, and held by the family until 1968. The house was built by her father about 1860 after the colonial era house burned, though ancient barns remain.
      Marion Carll (1885-1968) was a teacher who left the 9 acre property to the school district for a historic site. Although development was thwarted, little else has been done for 50 years and the structures are now endangered. Currently, they are “working on proposals.” Sad. (Never ever leave an old house to the government, a church or an institution if you care about it.)

        That is somewhat encouraging although even Preservation Long Island notes a lack of local preservation resources. With the condition reports being generally favorable, perhaps someone can champion the cause and this will lead to saving this wonderfully intact mid 19th century farm house and its outbuildings. Keeping my fingers crossed for this one.

    New colors, new price, back on the market in Seymour, Indiana, for $185,000: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/615-N-Chestnut-St-Seymour-IN-47274/85400138_zpid/ This was originally the home of a patent medicine man. Looks like much of the recent work done on this house was sympathetic. The tilework in the foyer was done by a previous owner several years ago. Seymour the smaller town (if you can call over 17,000 small) where aging Rock singer John Cougar Mellencamp is from, sits about 55 miles due north of Louisville, KY via I-65.

    1904. I love this house inside and out! I’m hoping one our OHD “resident historians” will tell me more about it. The staircase is so enchanting, and I love the summer kitchen that has been restored to useable space. Even better…it will be sold furnished. $259K
