    1901 Folk Victorian
    Chestatee, GA

    I included the 2018 street view showing what was covered over.

    I’m not 100% on this but an article about one (or the original?) owner, John W. Lanham, gunsmith: https://www.greensburgdailynews.com/opinion/columns/sharing-the-story-of-a-local-gunsmith/article_355a9c90-f245-58c0-bc1e-9ecab6671aab.html

      That’s right. Lanham lived there with his family briefly before his death from paralysis in 1902. The house stayed in the family until 1960 – widow Mary Catherine Brock and their unmarried children Eugene and Myrta lived there for the rest of their lives.

      It’s a nice one! (Comment on siding redacted.)

      1875 Limestone house
      Langeais, Loire Valley,

      The bland empty gable struck me as bland at first sight. Now with the old streetview it makes more sense, it was decorated! Love that sunburst.

    1901 looks spot-on for this house. The older streetview reveals an ornate example of the late Queen Anne style albeit without a tower or turret. The interior is nice without being pretentious with original looking unpainted millwork. There’s a couple of nice built-ins as well. I think with some TLC and preservation focused work this could become a very attractive home. Greensburg is a town of about 12,000 located 52 miles southeast of Indianapolis via I-74. Apparently Honda of America has a manufacturing facility north of the town. Thanks for sharing the original owner’s biographic information.
