Our property has a unique history, as does Lawrence itself. During the Civil War the city was burned, but this property escaped. Here is an excerpt from a historic publication about what happened:
THE LAWRENCE MASSACRE
BY A BAND OF MISSOURI RUFFIANS
AUGUST 21, 1863
J. S. BROUGHTON PUBLISHER
One of the guerrillas went to the stable of J. G. Sands, corner of Pinckney and Tennessee streets; stole his carriage horse and the pet pony 'Freddie.' While engaged in this, four others came up the alley, one of them was heard to say, 'Why in h___ are not these houses burnt.' Dismounting to execute their threat, they were met by 'Freddie' running past them, who had escaped from his captor, they were urged to assist in securing the runaway, at once remounting they all followed him, who lead them away from this part of town and before he was again secured they were engaged in other scenes of murder. This providential escape of the pony undoubtedly saved, not only the houses, but also the lives of Dr. Fuller, B. W. Woodward and J. G. Sands.

Knockout Venue for our Wedding Party.
We rented the whole house and had the most amazing family get together. The house is stunning and we all felt completely at home. Sitting out on the front porch watching the world go by and sipping wine was incredibly relaxing. Serina breezed in to welcome us, is a great character and then breezed out again. We all absolutely loved our time there. Many thanks Serina.
