“I used to live in Wichita in college and drive by this place every day. The pictures hardly correspond to reality. It’s really great.”
“Just in time for spooky season! Looks pretty classy…but also the perfect place to….*lightning strike* MURDER”
“I think this is the house that Pete and Trudy Campbell bought when they moved to Wichita at the end of Mad Men.
“Stunning and very old world. I love that each bedroom is so unique. I saw someone mention it was a B&B and I have to agree. What a beautiful place to stay.”
“I loved this place at first. Then I reached the kitchen, then several dining tables, and realized that someone had destroyed what was once a beautiful home. But the biggest disappointment came when I got to the bedrooms and found them destroyed with the baths and sinks in them. So sad.”
“Col. Mustard, with a lead pipe, in the kitchen.”
