OH, TO STEP INSIDE this stately house, to imagine its grand past and those who once called this place home.
D. A. Adams had this house built along Main Street South in Hutchinson for $8,000 in 1901 as a replica of the Duke of Norfolk’s house on the estate where Adams was raised.
From what I gather, Adams made his money in the insurance business.
According to the most basic of online info I could find:
“The house will be possessed of every modern convenience, and Mr. Adams will certainly have, when completed, a new house in which he can take great comfort,”—Independent Newspaper, December 11, 1902
Ah, yes, I believe that with some touch-up painting, I could be quite comfortable in this elegant house.
