405 11th St SE, Cooperstown, ND, 58425 $19,999
Located on a corner lot, this fixer upper deserves help. The exterior certainly has curb appeal. I love all the elements that make the exterior such an appealing home. The interior is another story. Dropped ceilings and crummy paneling have stripped the home of its original character, as is often (sadly) the case with these cheap old homes.
Cooperstown (pop. 984) was named for R. C. Cooper, a successful farmer who built the first wood frame house in the area in 1880. Prior to Cooper’s house, most settlers back then lived in sod houses, covered wagons, tents, or log cabins.
