The Mary Steele Scales House, circa 1893, in 1987

Salisbury's historic Mary Steele Scales House, circa 1893, is for sale!  These photos depict the meticulously restored home as it appeared in 1987 when it was featured in the Historic Salisbury Foundation's annual October Tour of Historic Homes.

This wonderful 2089~square foot Victorian, is the last 19th century house built by the descendants of General John Steele on his once extensive plantation, 'Lombardy'. In 1983, the great-granddaughter of Steele, Mary Steele Scales, erected this picturesque Victorian just south of the original Steele house (circa 1799, still standing at 1010 Richard Street ~ walk two blocks north on N. Lee/Richard Street to The John Steele House). Restoration began in 1984 by Dr. Peter Dixon and was completed in 1986 by renowned Salisbury preservationist Edward Clement (present owner of the John Steele House).
