c.1905 Affordable Home with Amazing Woodwork in Decatur, IL Under $70K
This was the home of Ted and LaRue Shelley and their children Ted and Nancy from the 1930s through the 1960s. The couple married young (LaRue was only in her teens, and Ted had a 10th grade education while LaRue an 8th), but they purchased this home by working hard. Ted worked a 40 hour work week as a baker in a bakery, and LaRue worked as a saleswoman at Sears when the children got older. The house was passed down to the son Ted after the parents passing. We can thank the Shelleys for being excellent stewards over the amazing woodwork!!
