This is a huge house! But I don’t understand why they didn’t provide more pictures. This home was built in 1900. It is located on .3 acres in Shelbyville, Indiana. The third floor was originally the ballroom. This was home to Frank Whitcomb, one of the most widely known furniture manufacturers. The listing says a U.S. president spoke from a balcony in this home. Eight bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 7,520 square feet. $234,900
