    Just emailed Chris, possible this is a Barber home.

      Yes, this home is most definitely a Barber designed home. It is an example of design 41 from “The Cottage Souvenir No. 2”. Tears me apart to see any historic home in this state of neglect.

        Hey Chris! I know your name from my husband, Donnie. Not sure how you met, though!

        • Christopher DiMatteiChristopher DiMattei says: 265 comments

          Christie, Donnie and I have been online friends for quite some time now. We met, as you might have guessed, because of our shared interest in all things “George F. Barber”. I wish I could have visited you both when you were the proud caretakers of Pecan Place. Oh well, such is life. I hope to get back to Tennessee soon. Be well.

    This looks like half of our old house turned and flipped to the other side. I agree that it’s a Barber. Love the beautiful dark woods.

    Over the past couple of weeks, Kelly has provided the forum with a collection of beautiful houses in need of a restoration at a very modest cost for just the house. Its always intriguing to set back and day dream about restoring these beauties. I always enjoy seeing the houses that have been well cared for through out the last century but I have always enjoyed a great restoration project coupled with all the history that comes with the house. Thank you for all your hard work and your dedication to your forum Ms. Kelly.

    Yes, Kelly thanks for all. Like the oldies that need work. More small farm like holdings, please. More in the country. This will be a lot of work.

    Hello OHD team, I was just in this house this week and am considering becoming its owner. I am joining the group to follow and see what assistance through information this group may afford me – such as how to tap into any local government programs, tax abatement, etc. and, if I do this, I expect I will try to bring the local community into the mix for support as I am sure they will be happy to see the old girl brought back. What say you?

    Cattz, Kansas is one of the few states that has a restoration grant program with yearly grants available. The State Historic Preservation office is a good place to start: https://www.kshs.org/p/help-for-property-owners/15605 Perhaps Ross, owner-restorer of the Cross Mansion in Emporia will see this and can add more information. He has applied and received State grants for the Cross house and can hopefully walk you through the application process. Best wishes, should you become the next owner of this historic home.
