Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of history on the Marietta Square! This Queen Anne “Schilling House” (yes, the Schilling of Schilling’s Hardware and inspiration for Shilling’s the restaurant) was built in 1887 and has a long-storied history in Marietta. Property has been recently renovated with new carpet true to the era and updated upstairs bathroom. For the past 25 years it has been home to Design Directions International and sits right across the street from the new courthouse on “lawyer row.” In the 1930s, the home was turned into a boarding house which you can still see remnants of today – the rooms on the third floor still feature their room numbers! The building is on the National Register of Historical places and was recently featured in one of the Marietta Museum of History’s “History Loves Company” series. The property is two blocks from the Marietta Square, and you will be able to give people directions from the Big Chicken! The main floor features a huge library with three built in workstations. There are two additional offices on the main floor, the back one features floor to ceiling built in shelves. The main floor also features 12’ ceilings, two conference rooms, a reception area, restroom, kitchenette, and parlor area. The second floor features a private entrance, half bath, and four offices. The third floor has three more offices and an additional storage space, one of the offices is set up in the “crow’s nest” and features tons of natural light and a cool view of the new courthouse. This property is full of potential, come see it before it’s gone!
