Baylor-Neely House
308 East 9th Street
New Albany, IN 47150

Listing Description:
This house - like its neighbors at 306 and 310 East 9th - was constructed for John and Fannie Baylor for investment purposes. John was a prominent citizen of New Albany and served a term as Floyd County Treasurer. He was on the Board of Directors for the New Albany Trust Company and a large stockholder in that institution, as well as having extensive land holdings. Mr. Baylor died in July 1913, and his wife retained ownership of this house until June 1944, renting it to numerous occupants over that period. The first owner-occupants of the house were Eskel Neely, a draftsman, and his wife Wilda. The Neelys lived here only two years, and over the next decades the house was owned by several different investors and saw many occupants. The photo below shows the house when it was on the market in 1975, with freshly-installed aluminum siding. The home underwent an extensive rehabilitation in 2009-10.
