About Me 

My interest in historical buildings began with some of the late 19th century Courthouses we have here in the Midwest. I have grown to appreciate the commercial buildings of the same period.

George & Annie Bell House
Posted February 23, 2013

Last weekend, I was out and about exploring Lawrence, Ks. Just east of the University of Kansas main campus is a very old, nondescript house that is on the National Register - the George & Annie Bell House. The property was built just prior to Quantrill's Raid of Lawrence in August of 1863 and was burned after George Bell was killed trying to defend downtown. It's really great that I was able to find a gem like this to tie a very significant historical event for my state to the present. It's also excellent to be able to share properties like this to the rest of the world - usually, people would just drive by something like this.
