LOCATION: South English, Iowa
This 1872 brick manse originally caught our attention because of its four mastlike oak columns, constructed by a well-known local shipbuilder, and the elegant front and rear veranda railings, which echo ones seen on Mississippi riverboats. Unfortunately, we have no idea what happened to it. The seller's phone has been disconnected, and we are unable to track her down. We'll let you know as soon as we hear anything.
