    I have been in this house, it has a high level of architectural integrity like the butlers pantry, a lot of period light fixtures and the mantle is exceptional. Very big house and this would be ripe for a full B&B. Property values are rising rapidly here and this is a bargain. There is a lot of restoration on this immediate block too.

      Agreed, Paul. I really appreciate you and Greg showing us the interior of this house. It was a really pleasant surprise compared to the home’s relatively sedate exterior. The house has recently dropped to $60K making this bargain property even better. It’s also close to everything in downtown Logansport, Indiana. As Logansport has gained in popularity and received national attention, bargain homes like this one are becoming scarce.

    Oh sure, just tease us with just a few pictures. The house looks promising from what I see but I wish they had more pictures.

    This house is beautiful. If I was to purchase this, I would take out the carpeting, remove the laminate flooring, and restore the hardwood floor underneath then remove the dropped ceilings to make the room back to its original ceiling height. But that’s all I would do as I cant see the rest of the house. But this house has huge potential to be beautiful again

  6. Much depends on how good the Local Preservation Group is, and how onerous the Local Designation is. I’ve emailed to find out the local process for permissions for restorations. It’s a gorgeous place

    • I checked on this house before & I live out of state. Andrew Vinson of 2 Rivers Reality did a video walk thru with me over the phone! He is an amazing man to have as your realtor….he goes way beyond the norm as a realtor. He is right there in Logansport

    It is in a “proposed” National historic district , not a local one, so its not an issue. I would however, suggest you obtain local designation once you are done to help protect it going forward. In addition to the local HPC Historic Preservation Commission there is also Logansport Landmarks of which I am communication Director of. We do a couple of events during preservation month, have a Facebook information page, and more importantly, we share information and knowledge and help market available historic homes.

  8. I grew up in Logansport and was in school with one of the Clawson’s. I was in the house back in the 80’s. It hasn’t changed much from what I can tell by the pictures posted. I can tell you that the family loved the home. It is one of quite a few beautiful homes in Logansport. I hope that when she finds a new family they take care of her because she will take care of them.

    According to Sanborn Maps and local directories, the house was built about 1902. The first residents were salesman and road contractor James Marion Vernon (1860-1952), his wife Catherine Kistler and their 2 daughters Edna Faye and Beulah Maureen. As a teenager, Beulah gave music lessons there, and both girls married and lived into their 90’s.
    About 1915, drugstore owner Homer Clyde Closson (1871-1929) purchased the home for his growing family, wife Alfaretta Hilton and eventually 8 children. The family owned the home for most of the 20th century and didn’t change a whole lot.
