Rare piece of history in this former Presbyterian Church with historic marker. Needs lots of TLC, sold as is. Would be a wonderful home or wedding chapel. Also for sale across the street is 341 Pietzsch- old Victorian featured in recent Hollywood movie. Both could be works of pride with restoration. Bartletts brick streets bring back time & would be great antique business opportunity with wedding chapel & victoria home. Just short drive to Salado, Georgetown, Austin.

Own a little piece of history in Carr settlement, The District No 2 Locke School, 1908. Lots of character in this old school house. The seller had purchased it in 2001 with the idea of making it a hunting lodge, as times changed the seller decided to sell. Located on a corner 2 acre parcel with lots of room for parking and roaming. The building had a new metal roof put on in 2004 and electric service box with some wiring. Some interior work was started. With the unbelievable price of only $14,900, use as a building site and tear building down or restore it. Carr creek runs along the side of the property with an artisan well! Immediate possession, this won’t last long!… read more

Good Brick Home, Church Building and lots behind the church. Home needs updating but is a solid, well built home. Church has great stained glass windows and furniture. There is a nice size organ with large speakers behind the wooded carved piece. Large corner lot is about 1.26 acres. Church has hardwood floors. This is a classic structure and needs someone to bring it back to life. The stained glass windows in the church are great colors and offer a warm glow inside. Has lots of hardwood church pews.

The year that Buffalo Bill hunted buffalo to feed railroad crews; Alaska was purchased; Andrew Johnson took the Presidency; and Nebraska became our 37th State. That same year, Onarga, Il. was the most active center of learning in Iroquois county and thus the school was erected with additions to follow in 1898 and 1939. Currently it is the full time residence of local artisans. The building is nestled on 3.9 secluded acres, amongst many oak, fir and fruit trees. The old ball field still can be found hiding in dense vegetation. The 9+ classroom/ offices/ bedrooms range in size from 12×14 to 21×30 with the old cafeteria being 29×23. Much of the original blackboards, transums and hardwood floors are intact. By far the most expansive spaces are the 48×30 second floor great room with kitchenette and the 68×50 gym… complete with original hoops and 32×26 stage. The 2 Story structure is in good structural shape but needs updating all around. Radiator and boiler heat were the mainstay of this property, yet furnace heat has been incorporated into several rooms. I loved the bell tower aspect of the building where a cozy office space beckons. With some creative ingenuity and upgrades, this location with access to I57, could make this a great business venture or ultra interesting private residence.
