    While the first generation of settlers in Kansas may have had to get by initially with sod dugouts for homes, by the time of the post-Civil War generation in the 1870’s grand Victorian homes were appearing in the state’s prosperous growing towns. OHD has featured a number of nice Kansas based Victorians recently with this home added to the collection. Although none has been cutting edge or trend setting architecturally, they all seem comfortable and inviting as does this home. In cases where the “drama” of a full blown Queen Anne tower was deemed unnecessary or too costly, a prominent chamfered bay with distinct corbels flanking either side of the gable was considered acceptable. The interior reflects the accessibility railroads provided to distant markets via millwork catalogs so even in the most remote rural towns a stylish interior could be achieved. Interesting here to note all three stained glass window patterns are the same displayed in a “left-right” and vertical configuration. I suppose the builder or original homeowner liked that design enough to repeat it in several windows. Nice staircase (missing either a newel post finial or more likely, a newel post lamp) and millwork throughout; the mantels and glazed tilework surrounds are beautiful-they raise the elegance of this house almost to mansion level. The hardware example shown was a very popular pattern from the early 1880’s onward called the “Broken Leaf” pattern by the Lockwood Co. based in Fitchberg, MA -but in actuality, its the stem that is broken, not the leaf.

      The sink in the bathroom appears to be an original from the period. With the exception of the cabinet and faucets. But the sink bowl in picture 17 is a decorated bowl popular in the 1880s and 90s. Also nice to see original art glass still in situ. The mantels and all of that are quite stunning.

      My guess is that a wall with large doorway between front and back room, parlor and dining room, was removed. The hardwood floor, beautiful as it is, was installed over the original floor at turn of the century or later, thus covering up remnants of the removed wall. The ceiling decorations are later.

    I like the funny “wave” piece above the trim corners! Nice house for a cheap price and nice original features!

    WOW! I never expected to see such beautiful original features, given the price. Looks like some original tile remains on at least one of the fireplaces. I am a sucker for original stained wood, and this has plenty to offer. Beautiful staircase and stained glass windows, moulding, fireplace mantles. The fireplace brick work on the exterior of the home is lovely.
