This beautiful historic home is on one of the best blocks in Pittsburg, Kansas. The high ceilings, spacious rooms and many windows give it a very open and happy feeling. There are multiple built-ins in the house as well as spacious closets, most with windows in them. There have only been 5 owners in the last 98 years that include a bank president, a mine owner, a mayor, a bakery owner, a man who started a prominent radio station and one of the first TV stations in the area, and a philanthropist. The home was built as a duplex with separate utilities and was utilized this way until the early 50's when the third owner put a cased opening at the top and bottom of the stairs and made the whole house into a single residence.
