Captivating Historic Home in Downtown Abingdon! Talk about a home with a story to tell! This beautiful historic home is located in the Historic District of Abingdon, Virginia. The James Longley/James K. Gibson home is considered one of the towns oldest, still standing buildings/homes. Ownership of this house is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity! This stunning home was built in 1790. It has many fascinating features from the Pegged Rafters, log floor joists, handforged rose headed nails and the original hard wood floors along with the original H and L locks and hinges all dating back to the 1700s. Two of the exciting features of this beautiful home include the park like setting grounds and the direct connection to Plum Alley. A barn equipped with special features is included in this amazing property. Although I could go on for days about the history of this amazing place, one of the most interesting is that it is the birthplace of William Sanders Oury. This two story house offers three bedrooms and one and a half bath. If you would like the rare opportunity to own a piece of history this is the home for you! Step back in time in an era gone by!
