The Ira & Asenath Sturdevant House: A Living History Project Built of brick in 1855-6, the Ira & Asenath Sturdevant house is the oldest surviving dwelling in Waverly, Iowa.
Sold outside the Sturdevant family after Ira’s widow, Asenath, died in 1867, descendants repurchased it at a sheriff’s sale on April 14, 2009, loaning the money to The Iowa Historic Preservation Alliance (now Preservation Iowa) who owned it until it created its own separate non-profit (501c3) organization.
Operating as usual
This would be just awesome to do along 1st St. SW historic corridor in Waverly and in the Ira House neighborhood!!!

[03/24/16] Honoring a good man in Waverly, Iowa, who was the first in city government, along with then-Mayor Ike Ackerman, to respond to our first inquiries about whether the Ira Sturdevant House (oldest house in town) was in danger of demolition after the 2008 flood. Duane Liddle was also the one to come over when Rick Sturdevant was working alone in the house, to pick up a tool and help out. He had the vision of a historic district and soon it will come to fruition as the Sturdevant SW Historic District. We are sad to lose him as a member of our board, a man dedicated to preserving historic Waverly and to maintaining a citizen's voice in government.
