These two post-Victorian historic homes are being offered for a local house move as a matched pair. Truly original and chocked full of beautiful architectural details, these houses would make for amazing historical rentals or vacation homes, or as urban architectural gems within the City of Monroe itself. We have priced the homes at $150,000 if moved at the same time ($75,000 each). As they are significant as a pair, we hope they can be kept together. Please inquire for price if only moving one.
The Buck Family in 1900 included Siralpha A. Buck and his wife Adeline. Beginning in 1894, he employed many men at Buck’s Shingle Mill on Woods Creek and provided utilities for the city through his Monroe Water and Light Company. Buck Island, in Al Borlin Park, is named after him.
The two Buck homes where the family lived are still standing at 143 and 135 Ann Street. They are exact twins of each other and were crafted in a simple farmhouse style. They have wrap-around porches supported by columns, bay windows downstairs and narrow windows upstairs. The historical society is launching an effort to move the homes before they are torn down for multi-family housing.
Please call your local office today for more information and to arrange to view these historical beauties!

NOTE: If width is a factor along your destination route it is possible to cut off the side porch (saving columns and architectural details and reinstalling them later). This would reduce the width to approximately 28 feet wide (from 34 feet).
