From the Zillow listing:


If this old house could talk, imagine the stories that it could tell! Built in 1880, this historic home is located in the heart of Terry and features a large front porch that’s begging for folks to pull up a rocking chair and sip a tall glass of sweet tea. The lustrous of its glory days has faded and is peeling in some places, but you can feel the history as you step inside the foyer. High ceilings with the wide baseboards, hardwood flooring, original doors, knobs and fireplaces can’t help but make one want to preserve the past. This home features 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, one with a claw foot tub. The formal living and formal dining rooms each feature a fireplace and can be closed off from one another with huge pocket doors! This home may be a little worse for wear, but offers a blank canvas to make it your own. Who knows what treasure trove of original features you may find in the renovation. This is definitely a diamond in the rough and this house is looking for someone to breathe new life into it. Located on a quiet street with ample yards and a carport this little piece of history could be yours.
