The historic Egloff House is looking for new owners and the price is certainly hard to beat. The 5-bedroom, 1939 home was designed by St. Paul architect Earle Richard Cone and was the first in Mason City to have central air. It features glass block and porthole windows, built -in dressers, and a room resembling a ship. You can have it for $1.00 if you are willing to move the house to a new location.
Damaged during the floods of 2008, the Egloff House is now owned by the City of Mason City. They are currently conducting a feasibility study to determine how much it will cost to move the house, potential locations for the relocation, and potential new uses. The City would like to find a new owner with a mind for history.
