The magic of days past becomes part of the adventure as you discover the older homes in Connersville. Connersvilles early leaders left a legacy of fine architecture in the impressive homes they built. Among these is Elmhurst, built in 1831 by a member of Congress; the Ansted Home, built by E.W. Ansted who, in 1895, headed Ansted Spring and Axle and later headed the Lexington Motor Company; and the McFarlan homes, also built by the motor car family. Spacious living for the busy executive, the artist, and the nature lover can be found in town among the many older mansions and stately Victorian homes.
For the modern family looking for 21st century convenience and style, the same attention to detail, structure and architecture that went into the mansions of old is available in the new homes of Connersville and Fayette County.
The nearly 11,000 existing homes in Fayette County offer everything from 19th-century mansions to modern town homes, from cozy bungalows to sprawling executive style estates, from rental apartments and condominiums to retirement living.
Homes dating back to the late 19th century and early 20th century line the streets near the downtown business area, reflecting the early growth of the city. Beautiful Victorian, Italianate and Federal designs are sprinkled among the American Foursquares of the early 20th century. Stroll past front porches where neighbors share life stories, and strengthen friendships.
