This home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. I wish there were more pictures. The Rackley-Herring-Holland House was built in 1875. It is located on .53 acres in Clinton, North Carolina. The home is situated within walking distance to all that downtown Clinton has to offer. There are hardwood floors, built-ins and a pretty coffered ceiling. There are two working kitchens in the house. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,030 square feet. $139,900

From the Preservation North Carolina listing:


This beautiful home is on the National Historic Registry and was built in 1875. It has been nicely preserved to give many additional years of enjoyment for years to come! This spacious 2000 plus square foot home rests on a .53 acre neatly landscaped lot. This home is one of the oldest and most original structures in the Clinton historic district and is only a short walking distance to the downtown area with wonderful shops, restaurants, library, post office, CVS, Walgreens. Many other stores and workplaces, including Lowe’s, Walmart, Sampson Community College, Schindler Elevator, and Smithfield, are only a short drive from home. This unique home with exterior Gothic features, including a grand, covered front porch with staircase and entryway, and wonderful interior features including 10-ft ceilings, and hardwood flooring throughout, has a large living room with a boxed ceiling, three bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, two full, working kitchens (one large with adjacent family room, and one smaller), and includes an enclosed rear porch. There is a carport right at your kitchen door, so it’s quite convenient when raining. Also, there is a large, beautiful private backyard as well as a garaged-sized shed for storing items, and a mature grape arbor. A wonderful feature of this home is that one of the full baths, along with the smaller, but full kitchen, and adjoining room, allow for an in-law suite.
