Historic House Listings

Sold. Former funeral home, Circa 1918. On 1/2 acre in Kansas. Almost 5,000 square feet! $99,000

September 6, 2021

I’m not so sure I would feel comfortable living in a former funeral home. This house started off as a single family residence, then was converted to a funeral home, and then back to a single family residence. It was built in 1918. It is located on .48 acres in Coffeyville, Kansas. The pictures could be better because it’s really hard to tell what is what. But the home has hardwood floors, wainscoting, exposed beams, bay windows and some leaded glass windows. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 4,786 square feet. $99,000

From the Zillow listing:


This grand home has quite a history. Originally built in 1918 as a single family home with all the grand features of a show place in its time. Then used as a funeral home for many years. Most recently the owners purchased this home as their family home, art gallery and library. Huge rooms and lots of space. It difficult to determine the # of bedrooms since most rooms are multi-purpose. Main level has a grand entrance from the street or side entrance. Attached garage that you enter from the back of the house can be enlarged. Partial basement. Some original oak hardwood floors. Newer double paned windows. Floor attic with stairs widows week on top of house. Large lots with mature trees. Balcony off bedroom upstairs. Some central air/heat and some window units. Paved parking.
