On SecondShelters.com: Historical Shelter On the Way To a Lake? Try Shelbyville, Texas.

Share News:

For $350,000 and some elbow grease, someone is going to snag this bed-and-breakfast ready historical shelter on the way to Toledo Bend Lake in Shelbyville, Texas. It’s just a matter of when, and who, not if.

The Bickham House, built in the 1880s, is located at 794 FM 2694 and is a 4,232 square foot farmhouse with five cottages, a prayer room, and an old drugstore, all sitting on 42 acres of East Texas land. In between the town proper and Toledo Bend Lake (and less than 10 minutes from the lake), it would make a great spot to open a B-and-B for people that enjoy lake life and fishing, especially when you factor in the three-story farmhouse and five cottages that give you 13 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms.
