1892 Residence/ThursdayDoors

This Thursday Door is not currently on any historical registry, but listed on a ‘Walking Tour’ guide of Lawrence, Kansas. This is the home of Joseph McConnell, built in 1892. A really lovely home to pass by! (I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned I’m a bit partial to yellow homes.)

Described as a 2.5-story domestic building in the Eclectic style. Frame Style with wet-laid stone  foundation. Siding is original clapboard. (This means No Vinyl Siding!!) Its cross gable roof is covered with asphalt shingles.

The old post and the brick-lined street are just another endearing part of the historical era that Lawrence has made efforts to keep. A great example for other cities to follow. Hint, Hint, Sedalia, Missouri.
