c.1900 Victorian Home For Sale in Fort Scott, KS For $38K
This home has been a duplex in the past and upstairs kitchen plumbing has been removed.
This was the home of Robert Barr (1874-1917), Owner and City Editor of the Fort Scott Tribune and member of the state senate. He shared the home with his wife Rosa Belle Jackson Barr (1878-1927). The couple purchased the home after their marriage in 1902 and resided here with their young daughter Francis. I was tickled by the 1915 blurb in the Fort Scott Tribune where Rosa Belle offers a reward for the return of a lost $10 bill. Sadly, Robert suffered a heart attack and was found deceased in his car in 1917 at the age of 43.
Victorian For Sale with pocket doors, ornate fireplace, 2 ornamental fireplaces (non-functioning). Sunroom off downstairs bedroom, and sunroom off upstairs bedroom. Spacious front foyer entry. Hardwood under most carpets. Front and rear stairways. Door entries would lend to recreating this large home as a duplex again. Dual heat/air systems for upstairs/downstairs.
