This 26 room mansion remains much as it was when built in 1850 for $85,000. "Touring this home is well worth a drive of several-hundred miles." It is reputed to be the first home west of the Mississippi River that originally possessed indoor plumbing, central air, hot & cold running tap water in each bedroom/ bathroom, many featuring sterling silver gas fixtures through which the water flows, (when rotated), into the original marble sinks, and a 'bell' paging and 'voice tube' intercom system that would alert slaves or servants located in the kitchen and in the basement. "This is undoubtedly the most amazing Grand Antebellum Estate within a significant mileage radius from Lexington and the Greater Kansas City Areas." There are fifteen-foot-high ceilings throughout the entire home. Be sure to view the extremely primitive bathroom upstairs with the magnificent wooden tub, previously lined with lead. The 'honey-butter painted and feathered' Butler's Pantry, o ff of the kitchen, the magnificent Original Inset Coal Stove, and the absolutely tremendous brick-floored, stone-walled basement, are but a very few of the amazing original amenities still intact for viewing for the public seeking to tour this Lexington Estate. It will quickly become evident that you have entered a 'World Class' treasure! It is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
It is now operated as a Bed and Breakfast.
