An historic Maplewood home is on the market.
Ellendale Home Place, at 2637 Roseland Terrace, is listed in the Wall Street Journal for $501,000.
The listing calls the house Maplewood’s “second-oldest and most historic home.”
According to Maplewood historian Doug Houser, the description is slightly inaccurate.
The advertisement in the Wall Street Journal states, “This property is a true Victorian estate built in the 1870's, for the founder of Maplewood, James Sutton. After Sutton's passing, his daughter Kay Sutton-Thomas inherited it and named the estate, Ellendale Home Place.”
Houser said Sutton had two houses and both are long gone. The first was near the intersection of Greenwood and Commonwealth avenues. The second, at 7453 Manchester, is the current location of Dobbs Tire.
The house at 2637 Roseland Terrace “was named Ellendale Home Place by Lyman and Kay (formerly Sutton) Thomas, daughter of James. Lyman is the author of the still highly regarded 1911 History of St. Louis County,” Houser said.
It has four bedrooms and three and a half baths, if you’re interested.
