There’s Some Pretty Insane Woodwork Inside This Illinois Home

Whether or not you’re a fan of the “more is more” approach the Victorians took to outfitting their homes, you’ll still be awestruck with the interior of this massive home for sale in Rock Island, Illinois. It appears to have retained pretty much all of its original woodwork, and let me tell ya’—there’s a LOT of it! This beauty is on the market for $205,700, and that would pretty afford you a semi-large closet in my town. Which is to say: SOMEONE PLEASE SNATCH UP THIS GEM.
 
I’m sooooo curious!

Save The Sock Money House!

by Melanie Moore Krogman.

 
You know those cute grey and red sock monkeys we see in toy stores? Yes! A piece of the story behind them lies within the walls of this charming, not too big, but not too small, perfectly petite, 1557-sq. ft. house. This Second-Empire style, two-story house in Rockford, Illinois boasts an amazing staircase, fireplace, and hardwood floors. It also retains its exterior ornament: dormer windows, paired brackets, hooded windows, and big, welcoming double doors! Its amazing features will sparkle once again when restored to their former state of dignity.
 
What does this have to do with sock monkeys?
