Michael C. Kerr House
1109 East Main Street
New Albany, IN 47150

Listing Description:
This brick Gothic Revival/Italianate-style home was built in 1864 for Michael C. Kerr. Mr. Kerr was elected to five terms in Congress and was elected the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives on December 8, 1875. An 1886 remodel saw the third-floor Gothic dormer added, six-over-six front windows replaced with the current two-over-two, decorative hoods added over the front windows and door, and the side double-gallery porches enclosed. The photo below shows the home circa 1972, when it was divided into three apartments. The home, which had been largely vacant and neglected for years, underwent a substantial rehabilitation in recent years, earning the then-owners a 2010 'Facelift Award' from the New Albany Historic Preservation Commission.
