I snapped a few photos of some older homes in Larned, Kansas while we were there and used some photo editing gimmicks.
Craig says this old stone home was built in the same style as some of the old buildings at Fort Larned. So I assume it almost dates back to the same era.
This lovely old brick home has a lot of gingerbread! It originally belonged to the town banker, but I'm not sure who lives there now. I'd love a tour!
And this is the home where Craig grew up. It's really in bad shape now. The porch railings are missing and the paint's almost gone. Sad. But the house is OLD. It dates back to the late 1800's. I remember the beautiful original wide plank wood flooring, old kitchen cupboards, wrap around porch, etc.... We still have a copper lightning rod from the roof that we saved after the home was sold. I hope someone restores the old beauty someday!
