Greek Revival-style Townhouse
In the late 1800s, coal, cotton, and easy access to the Ohio River made Cannelton a bustling commercial center. Although now much less industrial, the town remains an active hub on the Ohio River Scenic Byway. Indiana Landmarks offers a charming property in the historic community, the c.1845 Heim-Haury House.
Local legend holds that a stonemason who worked on the impressive St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church used leftover sandstone to construct the Greek Revival-style townhouse at 109 Seventh Street (SR 66).
Improvements include a new roof and guttering, new wooden windows, stone restoration and cleaning, foundation and structural repairs, exterior painting, rebuilt floor systems on the first floor and part of the second floor, and site drainage improvements.
The home will be sold with protective covenants to a buyer who can finish its rehabilitation within a reasonable time table (typically one year). Prospective buyers should make an offer they believe is feasible to accomplish the project.
