In 1895 in Silver City, New Mexico, a flash flood devastated the original downtown and left a ditch 55 feet lower than the street level. For decades, the “Big Ditch” was used for trash and sewage before local residents rallied to renovate and preserve the area.

Today, the Big Ditch in Silver City is a tree-lined walking trail and park with a footbridge that leads to the city’s downtown. One of the only structures to survive the 1895 flood was the Warren House, a five-bedroom, two-bath home that recently hit the market.

Constructed in 1885, the house has been carefully restored with an eye to maintaining its historic charm. Hard wood floors, exposed brick, and wood-trimmed windows welcome visitors to the home. Large windows let in plenty of light, while built-in cabinetry and wainscoting add elegance.

Outside, a landscaped backyard features a second level deck, views of the creek, and a chic studio that can be used for entertaining or work. Love what you see? 105 East Market Street is on the market now for $450,000.
