The history: The town of La Grange was founded in 1869 as a farming community, but a few residents were wealthy enough to build majestic homes. This manse was one of them, erected circa 1890 by George B. W. Hadley, the son of a prominent local physician, Dr. J. M. Hadley, who financed the project and lived upstairs while using the first floor as his office and exam area. The house passed through a few hands after the Hadleys, even serving a brief stint as a thrift shop. Now, Preservation North Carolina is looking for a new owner who can salvage its beauty.

Shown: The four-bedroom, three-bath house is about 4,000 square feet and sits on a half-acre lot.
