William Allen White rented this house from 1899 until he purchased it in 1901. It was his home for 45 years. The two-and-a-half story house features rough-hewn red sandstone ashlars on the first floor exterior walls while matching red brick stretchers; stucco, and simulated half-timbers make up the second and attic levels. The house was donated by the family to the State of Kansas in 2001 and is administered by the Kansas Historical Society as a state historic site. This lovely Tudor house also is on the National Landmark. Across from the house is William Allen White Elementary School.
