From the Zillow listing:


Historical? Could be. If these walls could talk..How many 1900’s homes have you seen lately? This is one for the record books–said to be the oldest home on Roanoke Avenue, once the mayor’s home! It’s priced so renovations can be done without breaking the bank. 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 hardwood floors and some antique pieces inside, dentil molding and many remodel items available with sale. Separate entry upstairs (needs new exterior steps), 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 / garage needs repair. Imagine….!
