Historic House Listings

$25,000 Circa 1890 in Vicksburg, Mississippi.

January 5, 2021

I sure hope they didn’t tear this house down! The listing is a bit confusing. This home was built in 1890. It is located on .34 acres in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The listing says the “prior home” was 4,000 square feet. In another part it says it is vacant land. I still see it on street view, but who knows when that was taken. The house seems in decent shape and it sure would be a shame if they did demolish it. There are hardwood floors, wainscoting, pocket doors, double front doors, juliet balcony, and other original features. $25,000
