From the Zillow listing:


If these walls could talk…How many 1900’s homes have you seen lately? If you like original colonial homes, this is one for the record books–said to be the oldest home on Roanoke Avenue & once the mayor’s home! With THREE kitchens, this home has lots of potential. Some electric fixtures were converted from gas & show the detail of a home of this era! What a classic find–waiting for someone to bring it back to its glory days! Oh, the stories this home could tell! Beautiful foyer entry, with some antique pieces still within, dentil molding and many remodel items available with sale. Upstairs has separate entry (needs new exterior steps) and was divided previously into two apartments. Main floor heat is gas pack; upstairs was heated by gas furnace (needs repair). Nice corner lot, detached garage (also in need of repair). AS IS Sale. Outside building floored (needs repair). Imagine….!
