Take a minute to absorb all of the details to found on that impressive, grand old façade. A central portico, fanlight, Corinthian-style columns—You had me at “Hello!”
The interior of the house boasts a staircase with lovely woodwork and detailing, wood floors, five fireplaces, tall ceilings, and incredibly large and elegant rooms. Someone get me a sturdy ladder, won’t you? I’ll roll up my sleeves and bring the elbow grease. Seriously, time’s a wastin’!

Born and raised in Iowa, Melanie’s mother and father both grew up on family farms where the old houses (mostly American Foursquares) were more often than not built by family and handed down to later generations. She remembers trips into town looking out the window of the back seat of the car admiring the Grand Victorian houses on the hills overlooking the river.
Melanie has a degree in Art Education from South Dakota State University. She has taught visual art and art history for 18 years. Besides teaching, she stays busy with her three kids, Kyle, Karlee and Caden along with the family dogs, Gus and Buddy. She can still be seen going through historical districts, but now she’s in the driver’s seat! She is super excited to contribute to CIRCA and hopes to help save some old houses!
