Housing Authority holds more open houses for blighted Jefferson City home

500 CAP 1


The Jefferson City Housing Authority allowed developers to take a closer look Tuesday at a dilapidated mansion on East Capitol Avenue.

It was the second round of tours for developers who aim to bid on the property known as Ivy Terrace.

The mansion, built in the 1890s, is in dismal shape, with asbestos, lead paint, mold and animal feces throughout its 2 1/2-story, Queen Anne style structure.

Located at 500 E. Capitol Ave., Ivy Terrace is one of six properties that the authority acquired from Barbara Buescher that it is placing on the market, along with 501, 507, 511 and 513 E. Capitol Ave. and 101 Jackson St.

The authority will accept bids until Jan. 7.
