LANSING, Mich. (AP) - One of Lansing’s oldest homes is scheduled to be sold at auction starting at $12,000.

Built in 1885 in the historic Cherry Hill neighborhood, the Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/1JmKDoP ) the 130-year-old home has original features such as a stone fireplace and hand-carved woodwork but also has gaping holes in plaster, water damage and other problems.

The 1,842-square-foot Queen Anne-style Victorian home is being sold at the Ingham County delinquent property auction next Thursday.

Ingham County Treasurer Eric Schertzing says: “Someone will really fall in love with it.”

Valerie Marvin, president of the Historical Society of Greater Lansing, says the home is a rarity in the city, since Lansing didn’t grow until 1910 to 1930. She says it’s “a good, middle-class home.”
