A Midwestern Classic

The Alkire House

Two Fifty Nine North State Street was built in pre-Civil war
days by Garrit Sharp. To lay out the floor plan in a true direction,
the North star was sighted one night in 1849 and construction
was started the next day The Sharp family lived in a log cabin
on the 450 acre military grant while the bricks were fired on the
premises. The rafters were hand hewn from logs and the bark
may still be seen. The wood work in the house is solid black
walnut. The home passed to Alkires (descendants of the Sharps)
