915 N Oak St, Valdosta, GA 31601 $99,000
This beautiful for sale by owner fixer upper is located in Valdosta Georgia’s North Paterson Historic District. What a masterpiece it could be.
The home was built in 1898 by John Nelson Deming (1848-1933). Deming was born in Nova Scotia, relocated to the warmer climate of Valdosta, became a U.S. citizen, and earned the title of master carpenter. He was well known in the community and built many homes in the area. Deming lived in this home with his wife, Annie, and children, Regina, Ebbert, Ruth, Grace, Richard, Anna John and Joseph from 1898 until his death in 1933. It appears Annie, 18 years her husband’s junior, continued to live in the home until her death in 1946. Per the U.S. Census, the house was worth $6,000 in 1930.
