Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I'm the GGGgranddaughter of the originally owners. Henry and Elenora Strong. Henry built the limestone home in 1867 from his nearby rock quarry at the foot of Bluemont Hill. The Strongs were early pioneers of Manhattan, Kansas locating there in 1858 from Bolton, CT. The Strongs had the largest apple orchard and dairy during that time. Elenora was the first school teacher in Manhattan along with Rev Blood's wife. Elenora taught in the loft of the Strong's barn. Henry was an abolitionist and walked to Missouri to fight the Civil War. Henry was on the good side of Government and was known to tend to sick livestock around the neighborhood. Henry supplied the limestone for Anderson Hall on Kansas State University Campus while Elenora sang at the laying of the cornerstone ceremony in a wagon. The Strong were very vital in the making of what Manhattan Kansas is today. Henry supplied stone to building on Poyntz, Sunset Cementary and the Strong School. Strong Ave. was also named after this family. The family was strong in their faith, trusting in GOD to guide them through hard times. The Strongs were no strangers to hard times as were most folks of that time. The lost several children, crops to natural disasters, livestock to disease, their orginal log cabin to fire and illness themselves.

Why the Owner Chose Manhattan:
This property is close and dear to those in Manhattan that love history. The location is in a nice established neighbor with nice trees and a large lot for privacy, grilling, volleyball and outdoor picnics. A great easy drive to the Bill Synder Stadium, Mercy Hospital, the Mall the Walmart.
