Untapped Potential

Nineteenth-century commercial building in downtown Huntington is a charming jewel box of a property, ready for the right buyer to finish polishing its fine features.

Located in the city’s National Register-listed Courthouse Square District, the building is well suited to a live-work arrangement. On the first floor, a large open area with high ceilings, tall display windows, and wide double doors could be stylish retail space. The second floor is currently configured as a two-bedroom apartment with an ornate fireplace and stunning views of downtown via the broad bay window. The property is solid and ready for final rehab. It will need updated utilities and finishes throughout.

Local preservation group Huntington Alert recently installed a new roof, repaired a damaged masonry wall, and rebuilt interior floor joists using a loan from Indiana Landmarks. The building will be sold subject to preservation covenants held by Indiana Landmarks governing exterior improvements. See listing on realtor’s website and take a virtual tour.
