In her recent travels, House Crazy Sarah landed in the delightful historic town of Dubuque, Iowa.

Dubuque is Iowa’s oldest city and is one of the oldest settlements on the west side of the Mississippi River. So Dubuque has a lot of wonderful old homes that date from the early to mid-1800s.

House Crazy Sarah was completely charmed by the Victorian homes and cottages that lined the steep, lush hills of Dubuque that rise up from the river. Of course, she hit to the web to see what the prices were like for these old homes.

And yes, my friends – Dubuque is fantastically affordable when it comes to real estate!

On West 17th Street you will find this gorgeous brick Queen Anne Victorian that dates back to 1848. It is currently listed for sale at $245,000.
