Welcome to the historic Albert Lawrence 1857 Home real estate auction. Here is a rare opportunity to bid on and own a mansion from the
past. A stately Federal Brick, 3 story home, possible 22 rooms, that, for the last 27 years has had the first 2 stories mostly renovated and
waiting for the next owner to put their touches on it. Home currently features stunning great room with gorgeous art deco style ceilings.  
There are 14’ ceilings throughout the home.  Home has original wood floor that has been refinished throughout home.  Historically the
property served as a home, the Colonial Inn, a museum, and a nursing home.  What a wonderful home for the professional that wants to
make a statement, as this also has separate brick structure that serves as an office space with office, reception area and restroom.
Would make an excellent Bed and Breakfast as it is convenient to Salt Fork, Seneca Lake, Amish Country, Roscoe Village, Marietta,
Glass and Pottery country, Columbus, Pittsburgh and more.  You truly need to see this home to understand the beauty and potential this
home has.  Opportunity Knocks!!!

AUCTIONEERS’S NOTE: Such a gorgeous representation of history that was here when Morgan’s Raiders came through town and was caught by General
Shackelford. There is period furniture, purchased by the builder, being sold with the personal property, including the Weber Ballroom Grand Piano circa 1887 that
cost nearly as much as the mansion. This is the place where Beulah Lowry prepared Sunday Fried Chicken Dinners for travelers and locals when she ran the
famous Colonial Inn. This is the place that overlooked changes in America’s landscape as Zanes Trace became the National Road, and Eisenhowers Interstate
system of highways became reality right behind the magnificent home. While the current owners, one of which was the Mayor of Old Washington for a period of
time, will be bittersweetly happy when the property sells, they really would love it if someone purchased it with the same passion to finish the majestic restoration
that they lovingly did for the last 27 years.
