From the Zillow listing:


This beautiful piece of history in Webbville has been in the same family for nearly a hundred years. The house was built in the 1920s and is on 27.5 acres, in a hollow but in sight of the road. The home is spacious with tons of indications of its former glory. The property is in need of repairs and restoration to all of the structures. The land and property is a homesteaders dream! There is a 14-stall barn with a full attic that was used for curing Burley tobacco. A small active creek from the hollow of two hills runs alongside the barn and provided fresh water for the family mules, cows, hogs and chickens. There are also smoke houses, a wood shed, a homemade cabin, chicken coop and other buildings. All buildings were hand-built in the early to mid-20th century. The property is directly across the road from the Yatesville Lake State Park. There is a boat access up the road. This is a must see property and your chance to own a piece of history!
