A house that has a great deal of promise has landed on the real estate market in Ottumwa, Iowa, for a steal.
“Own a piece of Ottumwa History!” the listing on Realtor.com says. “This beautiful grand home on 2-plus acres is unlike anything you have seen!”

The grounds are also a must-see with a “once exotic flower garden” and “original John Morrell guard house,” the listing says.
