Bass-Mollett House
115 E. Beaumont Ave., Greenville (Bond County)

 

 
   
 

 

Designed by architect Flavius Crocker for a local railroad magnate and banker, this 1892 Shingle-style mansion is located adjacent to the campus of Greenville College, a Christian school. It was donated 20 years ago to the college for use as the Presidentís house. Instead, it was used for student housing, has been vacant for seven years, and was poorly maintained. It is currently slated for demolition. In the past ten years, the college has demolished nearly seven city blocks of historic homes. Local advocates, including the donorís family, have committed funds for the houseís rehabilitation, contingent upon the college rescinding ownership.
