Under $100K Sunday – Circa 1856 Home For Sale in Haunted Alton, IL $100K – Sold


OHU50K NOTES.   $100,000 Sold For $95,000 on 4/8/22

This circa 1856 brick handyman special is located in what has been called the most haunted town in Illinois. Alton is home to the infamous McPike Mansion, just a three minute drive from our featured home, and the city has haunted house tours of many more homes. Our featured home sits behind a line of trees on a 2.55 acre corner parcel. The home is a stunner that needs work, but I would love to know the history of it. Might the cellar have been part of the underground railroad? I know the area is known for its underground railroad tours.

The Dudley Giberson family lived here from the 1930s to about 1970, but who lived here 100 years earlier?


This three bedroom, two and a half bath home dates back to the 1850s and is set on about 2.5 acres. You will find high ceilings, lots of wood work throughout and wood floors. The master bedroom has a very spacious closet that leads to the master bath. There is a hall bath and potential laundry room on the upper floor. There are two staircases one in the main foyer and the other off the kitchen. The lower level has a walk up egress and an old stone cellar that could be perfect for a wine room. There is a two car detached garage and brick driveway. Seller has not used the fireplaces. The home is being sold as is and the seller will not provide an occupancy permit. Per Zillow

    Alton is a beautiful town right across the river from St Louis. So it’s close to all the things to do in Saint Louis but far enough away that you don’t have all that horrible crime. Robert Wadlow is from Alton he’s that guy who had gigantism and was 8’÷ tall.
