From the Zillow listing:


170 years of potential.  Just imagine 1849, 12 years before the Civil War,  Zachary Taylor was just elected the 12th president of the United States. Back when this home was built, horsepower was still a reference to a horse and a family’s home truly was it’s castle. With a town built around it, this 1 acre lot, left from its original 11,000 acres from the William Henry Harrison land grant, will more than make up for the numerous repairs needed to bring this home back to its original beauty. If you desire to recapture the joy of a gentler time, consider this masterpiece, for it has seen America grow from the days of horse-drawn carriages to our modern times. This piece of our great history can be yours.
