The Setting

Although the house was quite "unlivable" when we purchased it, this house has a lot of attractive characteristics:
* Historical significance
* A year-round stream with a bridge and large boulders creating soothing noise
* There are two large ancient oak trees on the property.  We especially like the one that is 30' south of the house - it is the most beautiful oak tree I have seen. I would even buy the property just for this oak tree.
* Rural setting, yet close to town - livestock potential
The large oak tree viewed from 2F East bedroom - We ended up putting two sets of large PELLA doors here
News from the 1860's - we also found artifacts such as medicine bottles, iron, etc.
