Pierce Hembree moved into the Folk Victorian-style home in 1903 and lived on the property until 1918. His descendants also lived there for generations, according to the trust.

The home features one bedroom, two bathrooms, large attic and two barns on the property. Interested buyers should be aware that the property will be sold “as is” and cannot be demolished or moved.

The trust says the buyer who purchases the home will also have to sign a rehabilitation agreement to keep the historic integrity of the property when any work is done.
