Description

612 W Short St. was built by Benjamin Ford about 1840. Ford began making bricks here in 1823 with John Shrock who lived across the street. Ford constructed several houses on Short St. & lived next door to the East at 606 Short. Ford's estate transferred the property to his son C W Ford and wife Isabel in 1844, with the House first being sold out of the family in 1902 when it was purchased by prominent educator & farmer Lucian Clay Smith. Smith totally rebuilt the house in the Victorian style, adding the 3rd floor, the present configuration in place by 1907. Offered for public sale for the first timeout of the family since 1902, this house needs everything! High ceilings, large windows, Oak & heart pine floors, Garage off Klair Alley & Location, location, location! Walk to center of town, restaurants & Rupp. Ideal for a contemporary interior redo, all exterior changes require Board of Architectural Review approval. Inspections welcome but being sold as-is.
