419 E Broadway St, Yazoo City, MS, 39194 $97,000
c.1890 Fixer Upper in Yazoo City, MS
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the NRHP describes this fixer upper as a c.1910 two-and-a-half-story Colonial Revival brick residence boasting a prominent roof cornice with garlanded frieze. Fires in 1839 and 1904 destroyed much of Yazoo City’s central business district. In fact, the 1904 fire destroyed 324 buildings valued at $2,250,000. The proliferation of large Victorians and Colonial Revival, like our featured home, before and after the 1904 fire, attests to the city’s economic success.
