My parents are selling their home, and I was downtown at the government building today doing a bit of research into when it was built. <br><br>Things sure were cheaper back after the Civil War...the entire subdivision was platted in 1866, and 10 lots (including my parents') were sold in a block in 1866 for $3,000. <br><br>Then, their lot was sold in 1884 for a whopping $650, which is when construction on the house began. Cool stuff! <br><br>
