This house was built in 1836. My Great Grandfather bought it in 1936 and took the 2nd picture and sent it too his family to show them what he bought,my whole family has lived there at one time or another[except me and my sister],but it was last lived in ,in the late '60s by some hippies who painted all of the woodwork black! The 1st pic was done in black and white and was taken in 2004 we still use it for storage and is pretty solid for it's age. Also was a midwifes house before my family bought it.

    wow. I would LOVE to have an old house like that. Especially one that has been in the family for so long. I am no way a "handy man" but I would spend some of my down time doing my best to fix up what I can. Starting with removing all that old black paint! Send more pics if you can!

    Would love to see it restored to it's former glory before it's to late, love these early homes. We are restoring one from 1907 which is state hood here in Oklahoma, to only have a home from the 17 or 18 hundreds.

    Most of the damage to the upper/front area and some windows has been fixed ,it was from a wind storm [70 mph] that also took the roof off of our barn and blew it 300 yards into our field[ALSO FIXED BY ME! not sure I'd do that again].I also have my woodshop in the kitchen of this house ,and a project cushman scooter on the kitchen table!
