PA Fixer Upper With Acreage $85,000
Don’t trust the realtor’s build date on this one. According to “The Reading Times,” Wednesday, April 21, 1909 issue, the home was more likely built around 1870.
“OBITUARY – Samuel H. Lenhart, for almost half a century one of the leading business men of the county, died at his home in West Leesport.”
“Lenhart [1832-1909] opened a store here around 1860, when there were just a few houses on this side of the river. This house doesn’t appear on the 1862 map but does in 1876, and most likely was built for Lenhart in that period. Among other ventures, he owned a brick kiln down the street. Lenhart and wife Sallie Kauffman had 9 children.”
Love that linoleum rug in the bedroom, and the kitchen ~ especially the stove! Very good livability score for Leesport, too.
