It's rare to find a house that's been suspended in time. As a preservationist—I work at Indiana Landmarks—that's what I love so much about this Gothic Revival cottage, which was built in 1867 and has undergone few changes since. What's even more special: From 1901 until the 1980s, it was owned by a single family. After the last remaining member passed away, in the 1990s, it sat vacant until our preservation group bought it, in 2012.
Shown: The house sits on a quarter-acre lot, which includes two outbuildings.
