This home has always had a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ about it. It doesn’t hurt that it’s a stone’s throw from another favorite, Woodruff Place. If you’ve ever been on East 10th Street, surely you’ve noticed this sweet and prim little home quietly sunning herself on an unassuming corner. This gem is on the National Register of Historic Places. A brief search on ancestry.com. The William Prosser house, built in 1886 is stucco, scored to resemble stone. Prosser was a professional plasterer and this, his home, showcased his craftsmanship.A definite favorite…
