Unique, historic building in Fowlerville

provides opportunity for business, residence, or both

One of the most unique properties in Livingston County, this historic church and residence in beautiful downtown Fowlerville provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a home, a business, or both.

The building is the original St. Agnes Catholic Church, which was built in 1891 at the southeast corner of Church and Maple streets. On May 15, 1909, a devastating tornado tore the roof off the church and crumbled its walls, but by Oct. 20 of that year, a new cornerstone was laid at the site. St. Agnes is now located at 855 E. Grand River Ave.

The chapel is absolutely stunning, featuring the original, gorgeous woodwork and stained glass throughout. Recent updates include wrought iron railings in front and back, as well as an extended patio, new kitchen counters, and upgraded electric throughout the residence.

The property could be used for weddings and receptions, as well as an office and/or residence. The second-floor master suite is huge. The basement features 1-1/2 bathrooms, a bedroom, two offices and a large storage area.
