Antebellum Estate


This house on Strasburg Road dates from 1842 or 1843. It's been on the market for quite a while in spite of the price being reduced. I would guess that it hasn't sold because it needs updating and it's across the road from a cemetery.

We have nothing to do with the marketing of this property. I'm intrigued by it's history. It has stood in Waterlick since before the Civil War but I have no idea whether it was occupied by soldiers like the nearby church. The Warren County's history map that I recently purchased shows it as a little dot labeled "Paradise."

  4. It reminds me of the old places I've seen in films, with horses cantering up to those fences. I hope someone comes forward who will love it x

  5. i'd love to own a piece of history like that and it wouldn't bother me in the least to live across from a cemetery!

  6. I love seeing a lane with fencing. It would probably cost a small... maybe large fortune just to get it in good repair.
