Property Description

We always wonder what stories we would hear if walls could talk. Well, this home has an amazing story. Come travel back in time with me. The year is 1911 and after 7 years of marriage, Glen and Libby Owen are at the World's Fair in St. Louis MO. They stop at the Sears Roebuck & CO booth and flip through the catalog and there it is, their dream home! They ordered it on the spot and it was delivered by train to Republic MO and assembled at 143 East Elm St. They loved living here so much that they got their best friends, the Shorts, to build right next door. Where did the Short's find their home? You guessed it, the Sears Roebuck catalog. The two friends later opened the ''Owen and Short Hardware store'' in downtown Republic and became very successful. Mr. Owen loved his home and prestigious Elm Street so much that he lived there for 91 years. The rock building that is now a one car garage was the old pump house that serviced water for the neighborhood. They didn't have cars in those days so the owens had horse tie up's in what is now the driveway and would keep the horses and carriage in the carriage house that is still standing behind the main home. This magnificent home is now looking for the next person to love it for years to come. From the moment you walk up the front steps to the enormous covered front porch, you will feel the history and charm. When you walk through the front door you will see all of the original wood flooring and trim work. None of it has ever been painted and it is still as beautiful today as it was over 100 years ago.You won't be able to miss the original heat registers that still heat the home today. Everywhere you turn is full of charm and memories. But don't worry, there are still plenty of memories to be made in this home. Call for your private tour today and you could be the next proud owner of the Owens home at 143 East Elm Street.
