What I Love About The Home
I love the original charm of this home and the huge yard (the better part of 5 lots in town). This house was originally built by one of Benton’s early mayors, William Bennett. He was the owner of Benton Brick and Pottery. We have spent our years here trying to restore and save this piece of Saline County history. The large, eat in, kitchen with original glass front cabinets is one of my favorite rooms. And the big laundry room and mud room help keep messes corralled. Everyone that comes over loves the ship lap walls and ceilings that are original to the house.
