This c.1885 brick fixer upper is located in the low-crime town of Fairland, Indiana (pop, 315) known for its annual Fairland Fish Fry. The home is on an eclectic street with lovely churches, old train depot and old abandoned brick buildings. Some may find the neighborhood odd, but it has a small town ambiance all its own.

You will note the exterior with cast iron fencing, fancy frieze, arched brickwork over the windows and intricate scrollwork on the porch. The interior offers beautiful doors, trim, transoms, tiled fireplace mantel, and cast iron radiators. And get a load of that kitchen stove and staircase. Of course, the home needs work, but despite the quirks of the house and neighborhood, I like it!
