Description for 305 S East Street Carlinville, IL 62626
This Early Classical Revival home has some great history in Carlinville! It was built by the John Palmer family in 1845 and has since been known as the Palmer House. It features a Cross Gable Roof, a two tiered porch on the front with tiered columns, while the front door has a transom and sidelights. Ten foot ceilings and solid brass doorknobs are still a part of this historic home and both fireplaces have elaborate carved wood mantles and imported Italian ceramic tiles-one still has an original mirror over it. Two sets of pocket doors, original plaster crown molding, a restored, original staircase and the radiators provide clean, efficient steam heat. Three bedrooms are found in the upstairs, as well as a large bathroom with a claw foot tub. SIDENOTE - As an attorney, John Palmer was a local Judge in Macoupin county, an IL Senator, Governor of IL and was not only visited by Abraham Lincoln in this home many times but was an appointee of President Lincolns during the civil war!
