​Beautiful stately two-story home with local history.  This home was built in 1884 by Warren and Margaret Gordley.  It was the childhood home of their son, William and niece, Jennie Marr Dunaway.  William Gordley, after his death, left the money to build our local park near the school, named for his cousin, Jennie, who had died at the age of 24. In June of 1950, David Finney purchased the home and it has been in his family ever since.   The home has lots of charm, from period moldings, arched doorway, transoms over doors, hardwood floors, fireplace and beautiful walnut staircase.  The 10’ ceilings really add to the appeal along with some built-ins.  There is a ton of storage in this updated house!   Appliances stay with the home, including stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, 2nd oven, washer, and dryer (laundry room on main floor).    Mr. Finney and his wife in 1984 did some renovations but left the character intact.  The home sits up high on a beautiful, large corner lot.  There are many mature trees, lovely flower beds, and well-manicured lawn and landscaping.  The wall to west of patio is made of bricks from the old Methodist Church that was located on Beardstown St. near the city square.  A white fence along Cheston Street has beautiful flowering vines that grow and welcome the butterflies to the patio area that is hidden behind this fence.  This is a wonderful house for those looking for a forever home.
