Fun Facts

The Perry family lived in the Wolf House for over sixty years, operating a boarding house. When the Kansas State Agriculture College's President's house burned in the 1890s, President Fairchild and his family lived at 630 Fremont until they found a new home. 

The 1880s kitchen addition had a cistern below it, with a trap door for access. Around 1905 a maid working in the house fell through the trap door, but as she was bigger than the opening, she did not fall all the way into the cistern. 

After years of research trying to pinpoint the building date of the Wolf House, we finally learned it was built between January and June 1868 because the stonemason who built it was not paid and he sued. The court case told when the house was built.
