MONTICELLO, Ind. (WLFI) - The home along U.S. 24 in Monticello has been catching the eyes of passers-by for decades.
"The first brick was laid in 1896. The rest of the farm was built in 1901 by George and Mary Inskeep," realtor Aaron Ruemler said.
Ruemler said the original owner, George Inskeep, went down in history all because of $67.
"George actually inherited $67 from his grandfather, a southern plantation owner in Virginia that operated with slave labor," Ruemler said. "It gave him the historic designation of being the only resident to inherit anything from slave labor."
The home was listed as one of the 99 most historic homes of Indiana. The 117-year-old home has since been completely restored.
"The house has been gutted, it's been changed," Ruemler said. "The kitchen is now where the old porch used to be and where we are standing now actually used to be where the old wood-burning stove used to be."
Now someone else has an opportunity to own a piece of history. The house has been on the market less than a week and already getting a lot of buzz.
"Everybody knows the house and when they drive by they say they want to own the house," Ruemler said. "Now is actually the first time since 2000 where someone else can own this property."
The home is listed at $320,000.
