This house is like a time capsule inside! With some gentle undoing of past renovations, this could be a nice house! Back in the day it was used to house railroad workers when the railroad was expanding into this area and they were enriching the coal mines. The house was built in 1870. It is located on .55 acre in Norton, Virginia. You know there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting! The house features a covered front porch, picture rails, crown moulding, french doors, baseboards, pocket doors, wainscoting, chair rails and original mantels. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms and 2,888 square feet. $180,000
