When was the last time you saw such a spectacular wrap-around porch on a house at this price point! You may be wondering how a town in Mississippi is named Kosciusko. Per Wikipedia:
The town was once named Red Bud Springs for a natural spring that was present in the city. Later, Redbud Springs was renamed Kosciusko was named for General Tadeusz Kościuszko, a Polish-Lithuanian officer who served with the Continental Army and assisted its military efforts during the American Revolution. His name has been anglicized as ‘Kosciusko’.
This was the home of Robert Johnson Love (1898-1983) and his wife Elba Self Love (1909-1992) for many years. Robert was an interior decorator as well as a floor cleaner. That is probably why this home has been kept in such good shape.
