Under $100K Sunday – c.1880 Illinois Mansion For Sale $77K – Time Capsule

OHU50K Notes   $77,000

 

Built around 1880, this Illinois mansion for sale is like a time capsule. The five bedroom, 1.5 bath architectural gem sits on a corner half acre lot in a small farming community of 390 residents. The fixer upper was owned by a successful businessman, possibly Robert N. Fleming, owner of a general store in town. My research shows that a large home was on this spot in 1881, but a 1909 tornado destroyed much of Robert Fleming’s house, along with a number of other town homes. I am thinking, he may have re-built this house on the lot.

Town History

The Citizen, Berea, Kentucky – July 15, 1909

TOWNS HIT HARD BY TORNADOES AND CYCLONES WHICH PASSED THOUGH SEVERAL STATES

St. Louis, Mo., July 12. – Tornadoes and waterspouts Sunday and Sunday night added to the immense amount of damage done throughout the west by floods. Among the cities struck by tornadoes Sunday night were Xenia and Pana in central Illinois. The former was hardest hit, and a number of its citizens were fatally injured. It is reported that the storm cost the lives of 20 persons in various parts of Kansas and Illinois.

The tornado which struck Xenia. Ill., Sunday evening injured and demolished more than a score of dwelling houses. No lives were lost there, owing to the fact that the storm came up at an hour on Sunday when people were at home. The storm came from the northwest and passed through the centre of the city. It lasted but 30 seconds and was followed by a cloudburst, It left many homeless, and timber and debris of homes is so thick over the town that the people had difficulty in finding missing members of their families.

The residence of Robert Holman and Edward Davis, and the barns of Frederick Holman and Emmet Colclasure, were blown entirely out of town. Robert Holman was seriously injured internally and his arm was broken. Mrs. Edward Davis and her little daughter also were injured. Many of the best homes were completely wrecked, including those of Robert Fleming, Emmet Colclasure, Henry Howland, T. B. Howland, J.B. Tully and H. L. Elliott. Mrs. Tully was severely cut by broken glass. All electric light, telephone, and telegraph poles were levelled and the city is in darkness.
