OHU50K NOTES $
I couldn’t wait to post this beautiful Victorian-era home for sale in Alton, Illinois, until Under $75K Thursday in fear it would be gone by then. Disregard the agent’s 1930 build date. The home’s address is mentioned in a 1900 article in The Alton Evening Telegraph, so it is at least that old. This home, located on a corner lot in a neighborhood of beautiful older homes, is so worthy of a thoughtful restoration.
Great opportunity on this spacious home with basement. It offers approximately 4, 183 square feet of living space with 4 bedrooms and 2.1 bathrooms. Good floor plan. Built in 1930, this home requires enhancements and upgrades but worth taking a look at. Listing

This was the home of the Stout Family from 1911 at least until the 1940s. Richard Stout (1850-1930) was Treasurer of the Equitable Powder Company before his retirement. He lived here with his wife Mary (1852-1944) his three adult daughters, Emilie, Alice and Helen Stout, and a maid. All three daughters were teachers in a private school. Alice and Helen appear to have married late in life sometime before 1940, while Emilie remained a spinster and continued to live in the home after her parents’ deaths, along with a maid and a lodger.
