From the Zillow listing:


After pulling up past our bustling downtown, the historic firehouse (Carlos’ Cantina), the beautiful Morgan Stanley building and our library, it is hard to miss this two story Victorian style home, complete with a stained glass turret. Constructed at some point in the 1890s, rumor has it that this was one of the original houses of Iron Mountain – supposedly originally located on Carpenter Avenue, it was relocated in the early 20th century to where it stands today. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home sits in a quiet neighborhood at the bottom of Millie Hill. Featuring original woodwork, two staircases, the fully accessible turret, and a partially heated garage/workshop, this fixer-upper is absolutely waiting for the right touch to add a modern twist to restore it to its former glory.
