From the Zillow listing:


Own a piece of early Waco history. 905 N 18th is one of only a few early Spanish Revival homes with a 100 plus year timeline of Waco’s growth. Just imagine who and what has passed by this home during the last century. Over the years, it’s stout walls have been host to many families and at one time was used as a church. If you have a nostalgic heart and appreciate what it took to build a home of this stature that many years ago then you must take a peek inside. Surrounded by similar stately homes in a neighborhood that is being re-vitalized back to the original glory. Many updates have been completed but there is also room to add your personal touches. The current owners have added two HVAC units, effecient windows on the first and second floors, new appliances, foundation leveling, the addition of 3 elec fireplaces and much much more. All you need to do is add your flair. As a bonus, the seller has the home pre-approved for a historic designation for those inclined to dig deep into a true turn of the “past” century resurrection. Pay close attention to the details as you walk through, noting both the Summer and Winter sunrooms, massive formal dining room (furniture included with the sale), a quaint butlers pantry, original hardwood floors upstairs, period blown glass windows in one room upstairs and the spacious personal dressing area in the master bedroom.
