From the Zillow listing:


So much history is in this home. This traditional 1899 home was built by Wallace Bond of Monroe City for Judge Gill and his wife. The farm was known as the Gilmore farm. Pictures of the farm and other large farms in Ralls county were pictured as show farms in the Ralls Co MO, exhibit in the World’s Fair in St. Louis. Perry is a small town with less than 700 people just south of the Mark Twain Lake. Perry has been restored to its former glory and is an antiques’ delight. This home would make the perfect Bed and Breakfast. This home features six bedrooms, one on the main floor, two fireplaces with beautiful wood mantles with mirrors ,a formal front staircase and back staircase. The pocket doors, high ceilings, and original trim are not to be missed. This home is just waiting to be brought back to all is former glory. Sitting just south of town on 3.39 acres and almost 4000 sq ft this is a rehabbers dream come true!!!
