    Majestic 133-Year-Old Iowa Home Built by Father of Famous Author [PHOTOS]

    This home at 900 West 3rd Street in Dubuque was built in 1890. The 5,000+ square-foot house has 5 bedrooms. It was built for Lester C. Bissell, one of the original board members of what would become the Dubuque Chamber of Commerce.

    Lester's grandson, Richard Bissell, lived in the home beginning in 1975. His 1953 novel '7 1/2 Cents' would eventually become 'The Pajama Game', a Broadway musical that won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1955. A movie of the same name, featuring Doris Day, would be released in 1957.

    The Bissell Family owned the home from 1890 until 1977 when it was purchased by the Mozena family, which still owns it today.

    Angela Mozena of Mozena Realty Group is the realtor for the property, which is listed at $895,000.
