    I don’t see a ton that needs to be done. Maybe stuff I can’t see. (I know nothing).
    I really love it.
    Plus, I love the name Shuqualak

    New ext, vintage int.

    Not much in Shuqualak (pronounced Shug (like sugar) ah lock). Lots of chicken and catfish farmers in the county. The town itself has pretty much dried up, last time I was through there. But it’s pretty much in the middle of Columbus and Meridian MS. Not far from Shuqualak is the East MS Community College, which has the 5 time National Junior College Football Championship team. The town where the college is located is also a tiny place. Tuition is fairly cheap, and the other sports teams perform pretty well also. This is a very rural part of the state, with a major highway within a mile of both of the towns center. It’s not a long drive to get to bigger towns and a couple of cities.

    I wish I knew the history of this house—if it had been kept in the family over the years, or it it was sold and updated. The street view photos are from 2009. Very nice large yard, small town, pretty quiet surrounding….it would be a great place to retire and take it easy.

    It belonged to my cousin from about 1930 until her death in 1994. It was a pretty old house, always freshly painted & well-maintained, and full of antiques. After her death, it sat vacant for a few years while her estate was settled. I remember going in it, and I found that it was a little “soft” in spaces, as if perhaps there were some rot. It was purchased by new owners in about 2000. Doesn’t appear the new owners did it any great favors.

    Yes, the northern chimney appears to be gone entirely, and the southern chimney seems to have some kind of tarp around it. The shutters have mostly been ripped off as well. My understanding is that the marble has been ripped off the fireplaces. You can google “Flora house Shuqualak” and see some pictures of it (Mississippi Dept of Archives & History) when it was well cared for .

  5. A friend in the area looked at it pretty closely at my request. The northern chimney has been entirely removed from the house, from the roof all the way down to the first floor, leaving a gaping hole in the roof through which rain water is leaking into the entire house. There seems to be a tremendous amount of water damage. Many of the light fixtures have been removed, as well as all of the mantles. Portions of the house appear to be structurally sound; other portions will need work. There’s quite a bit of mildew throughout the house.

  6. Hey all! My daughter and son-in-law just purchased this house! They saw it a few months ago and fell in love with it. There is a considerable amount of work that needs to be done to the house, but overall the house is still solid. We are looking forward to getting the restoration started!
