Circa 1760! Ten acres in Kentucky. $140,000

July 26, 2018

Looks a little rough on the exterior, but the interior wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. Surprised it has central air. Love how they show that joinery…..wow. Built in 1760, back during the days when Jesse James roamed that area! Located on 10.82 acres in Boston, Kentucky. Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,000 square feet. $140,000

From the Zillow listing:


Privacy and history all on one property. This cabin was built in the 1760’s in Cox’s Creek through the days when Jesse James roamed the area and was moved to this location in 1984. The HVAC, roof, windows have all been updated within the last 8 years. Great place for a retreat with beautiful wooded acreage!
