Mansion with an old jail! 8,000 SF. Circa 1895 in Pennsylvania. $274,900

July 17, 2023

This is probably the most unique old house I have seen! What would you do with the jail cells? This home and jail was built in 1895. It is located on .66 acres in Bedford, Pennsylvania. The home features a large covered front porch, some hardwood floors, This home was built using hand made brick. There are seven fireplaces and all are in working order. It needs work and this is a big house with almost 8,000 square feet. I just don’t know what I would do with the old jail cells. It says there is only one bathroom, but I guess they aren’t taking into account the toilets in the jail. Five bedrooms, one bathroom and 7,880 square feet. $274,900
