HARVARD – The McHenry County Historical Society will team with a local Realtor to display a historical house for sale in Harvard.

Community members can view the William D. Hall house, a five-bedroom, 4,245-square-foot house built in the early 1900s, during an open house from 1 to 4 p.m. Jan. 5. The prairie-style home is located at 201 Garfield St., Harvard.

The event costs $7 a person or $12 for two people, with proceeds going to benefit the historical society.

Realtor Jose Rey is listing the property for $315,000.

Built in 1902, the house was occupied a year later by William D. Hall, a former Harvard mayor and Woodstock lumberyard owner, and his family, according to a release from the McHenry County Historical Society.

The society marked the house with a plaque in 1988.
