c.1880 Fixer Upper in Nauvoo, IL $65K
This c.1880 home is located in Nauvoo, Illinois (pop 1,129), a town with an abundance of Mormon history. Historic downtown Nauvoo is within walking distance, and the Nauvoo Temple is just down the street.
Up to 1.5 million visitors a year come to Nauvoo annually, so this sweet home might make a great AirBnB.
I love the home’s curved staircase, but I especially appreciate the third floor balcony. A bunch of newer houses surround this old house, so I surmise the acreage was much larger in 1880 than its present 1.15 acres. I’d like to think the beautiful old barn was once part of the parcel, and the farmer would stand on the home’s balcony to oversee his holdings.
