McPherson, Kansas: Pretty Houses

As I walked down beautiful South Maple in downtown McPherson, I fell in love with this little town. Located one block off of Main Street was a tree lined peaceful neighborhood with huge older homes.  Some of them were for sale, and my jaw dropped at how low the prices are, compared to the Northwest.

This lovely historic home is called The Bixby House, and was built in 1879.  Totally updated on a huge lot, this four bedroom home is only $149,900.  I also found a 1910 two bedroom house on the same street for only $79,900.  You can easily spend that much on a manufactured home with no land for that amount where we live.

Here is some more eye-candy, if you enjoy this sort of thing:

And, do you want to know the best part?  There are many good manufacturing jobs actually available in this town that pay $15 - $20 an hour to start, with full benefits.  I am not joking.  The schools are good, the people are so nice, and, um, they have a winning football team with one of the best high school quarterbacks in the nation.   I'm just sayin'.
