There’s something about historic homes that you never find in modern houses. For some, it’s a wonder that such beauty could have been created before power tools when corbels, columns, and cornices were hand-carved by master artisans rather than mass-produced by electronic machines. Others find joy in the materials from which such homes were constructed. No contemporary flooring material can match the beauty of the century-old patina on old-growth heart pine. Some love the sound of a skeleton key in a 100-year-old brass lockset, while others marvel at the outside world through the lens of wavy and perfectly imperfect window panes. And every owner of a historic home appreciates living in a place steeped in history where, if the walls could talk, the stories would be as endless as they are fascinating. Whatever your reason, you’ll fall in love with 810 E. Franklin Street – a historic home with modern amenities conveniently located near Downtown Monroe.
