John Frank built this historic limestone house, and advertised it as the German Boarding House. In 1875, Dr. George Hazard Perry III and his wife purchased the house and occupied it for the next 63 years. Max and Lucile Wolf acquired the house in 1941, and Mrs. Wolf gave the house to the Riley County Historical Society in 1982. The house has been restored to the period between 1883 and 1895. Spectacular Victorian wallpaper has redecorated the entry to that time. Visitors can discover how early pioneer families learned to live in style in the untamed tallgrass prairie of the late 19th century.
