Historical Home Coming …

I heard at our business meeting today about a fantastic old home about to come on the market in Smyrna.  I’m only writing about it here because I LOVE those old homes with lots of history and character!

It’s called the “Coleman House” and could be described as Smryna’s first bed and breakfast.  Back when farmers would bring in the cotton*, the one hotel in town filled up so the owners of the Coleman House would rent the three upstairs bedrooms. 

The home was built in the early 1900’s and has more than 3,000 square feet.  This gorgeous 5-bedroom home has all hardwood (under carpet in some rooms), oak handrails on the stairs, a covered deck, a kitchen that could be remodeled, new roof, new siding, and a front porch that’s over 40×10 in size.  The price will be $254,500.

If you’re interested in historical homes, please comment with your email (that’s not published) and I’ll arrange a tour!  I’ll post a photo once online!

*Think Places in the Heart… what did they call the little girl??  Possum?
