HOUSE + HOME RESTAURANT
We bought this house in the early 1990's. It was originally built in the 1870's. It has been vacant since the 1950's. Its colorful history includes being a boarding house as well as a brothel. It is in a buffer zone between the residential and industrial area of east Lawrence. At that time, we renovated the existing house and built a kitchen addition on the back. Years later we returned to build another addition adding more bedrooms as well as a detached dining room the owner/chef used to serves dramatic dishes from their kitchen for a clientele of corporate and personal guests. The dining room has a sod roof and the yard between it and the house is the focus of many festivities.
