From the Zillow listing:

 

Historical Queen Anne Victorian in the heart of St. Joseph is a preservationist’s dream come true. Built in 1895 this treasure boasts the original woodwork, hardwood flooring, 2 ornate fireplaces, pocket doors, a butlers pantry & a finished attic. Restoration of this classic had begun and there is still time to put your stamp on the revered property. All the space that a family at ANY turn of the century could ask for, including loads of storage space in the home and additional storage┬áspace/work area in the pole barn behind the home. This home is so well crafted that it has survived two moves of location and is still sound, sitting on poured concrete & concrete block foundation that is only 40 years old. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to own this piece of history, surrounded by beautiful trees and gardens on .35 acres in the middle of town.
