Ozem and Fannie Sackett House
217 East 10th Street
New Albany, IN 47150

Listing Description:
This home was constructed for Ozem Sackett and his wife, Fannie, around 1870. Mr. Sackett operated a drugstore in downtown New Albany. He passed away in 1911 and his widow moved from the home soon after.

The structure saw several different residents until the Arthur A. Brown family located here, and would remain here until the early 1990s. Arthur was a plant accountant for the New Albany-based Wood Mosaic Flooring Company, which supplied parquet flooring across the country, including to the White House. The house was divided into two living units at some point, likely during the Browns' tenure here.

After falling into disrepair and sitting vacant for many years, the home was purchased by the current owner in 2016. It was completely rehabbed both inside and out and returned to a single-family home, earning a 2018 'Facelift Award' from the New Albany Historic Preservation Commission for the transformation.
