The home, built around 1875 by Joseph Magoffin, is a prime example of Territorial style architecture and features a center courtyard and a peaceful landscape.

  • This district was my old news paper route from 1978 through 1983. I use to deliver the newspaper to over 100 homes. My clients would tip very good and took care of me during the holidays with small gifts.
