From the Zillow listing:


This unique turn of the century house was the home of Kansas Governor Lyman Humphrey’s grand daughter. Situated on a large corner lot just a few blocks from downtown it is the perfect fixer upper for a history buff. There are two large living rooms and dining room on the main floor plus a spacious kitchen. The 3/4 bath and downstairs bedroom is perfect for mother-in-law quarters. Upstairs are two full baths and 4 large bedrooms plus a sun/sleeping porch. The wide stair case going up to 2nd and 3rd floors allow easy access. The floored attic provides ample storage space. The 2nd floor linen closet/room would be ideal for an upstairs laundry room. There is also a large unfinished basement. A 3 car carriage house can be restored to park all you vehicles in.
