Despite popular belief, I was NOT around when Abraham Lincoln became President of the United States. However, there is one home in Hannibal that predates Abe taking the Oath of Office. It's a big blue house on Center Street and it was built before President Lincoln was President Lincoln.

I love homes with history and character. I've probably driven by this house a million times in my life, but have never seen inside...until now. This is 807 Center Street in Hannibal. It's available on which means there are pictures that show you what it's like inside.

Here's a small snippet from the listing explaining some of the history:

Let's call this house BIG BLUE . Step inside either of the 2 entrances and be wowed at the size of this home. Formally known as the Burnett home it is rich with history. The main level features an updated kitchen, main level laundry, a full bathroom, a living room, dining room, and an enclosed porch. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, and 2 full bathrooms. There are 2 sets of staircases, a front and back staircase.

Interesting mix of original bones of a home and new renovations. Yes, the listing says it was built in 1860 and old Abe Lincoln took office in 1861.

If a home with history like this appeals to you, the current asking price as of this writing is $200,000. More pics, details and updates available on the website.
