Far removed from the insanity of this crazy world is this great old building for sale in the small village of Jacksonville, Vermont.
The North River Hall dates back to 1920 when it was built by The Knights of Honor.
It is a little decrepit, but with a list price of $229,000 and endless possibilities for use, it’s not a bad deal at all.
This 4,800+ square-foot structure is zoned for mixed-use.
The building’s original purpose was to house social gatherings, meetings, plays, and dances.
It has been used for various businesses over the decades but most recently was home to the “Stone Soldier Pottery” store with gallery and retail spaces on the main floor as well as office spaces, inventory rooms, and 2 full bathrooms.
According to the listing, the main floor also used to house an owner’s apartment which was converted to more retail space when the business needed to expand.
The 2nd floor, originally the dance hall and stage, is currently a pottery studio with additional bath and office space.
Though not pictured, the third floor has previously been used as a 2 bedroom apartment with a large open floor plan.
One of the most endearing things about this building is the peaceful view out the back windows.
Interestingly, this is the first time in 50 years that the North River Hall has been up for sale.
It needs some TLC, but there are some great historic features intact.
Look at the front porch views in this tiny Vermont village:
Behind the building is a private lawn area with river access.
It’s picture-perfect and oh so peaceful… just what our tired souls need right about now.
