This Gothic Revival—once the site of a dinner party for Abraham Lincoln—is still on the market. It features 1,600 square feet of living space, porches on three sides, and a detached garage. Built in 1850, just 20 years after the vibrant farming community of Princeton was founded, the house is structurally sound and still has its original pine flooring and trim. The kitchen, bath, furnace, and second-floor wiring need updating. But at this price, the house is a steal.
