    Build date on record gives 1900 but the exterior and interior details say it’s between a decade or two older.

    This house could be fabulous.

    The brick porch piers have to go, STAT. The upper part of the original porch posts are extant, and a single remaining half post is extant, and this could be copied:


    Something about the roofline and eaves doesn’t look right. Way too simple. The roof was clearly redone not long ago. I wonder if trim/brackets were removed in the process?

      The roofline and eaves are characteristic of many vernacular houses built during the Territorial period of Kansas (1854-1861) when emphasis was frequently placed more on utility than stylistic considerations. While this house may date to the territorial period, it may also have been built as late as the 1870’s. I doubt that any trim or brackets were removed from the house — the roofline only looks odd now because the house was later updated with a fussier Queen-Anne style porch (and fancy front window).

      Because of the originally stark exterior and the presence of backbanded casings in at least one room, I’d guess that this house was built somewhere around 1865 (perhaps earlier) and was later updated with Queen Anne details (inside and out) around 1890.

      Here is a very old masonry house (now stuccoed and altered) of similar proportions nearby:

      And, yes, those brick porch piers have to go!

    It is listed as pending now. Someone must have just put it on their credit card.

    SD, that gave me a chuckle. I looked at a house in Ft Scott a couple of years ago, and I liked Ft Scott.
