We just happened to see this house and stopped to see if tours were available. We just made the last tour. The guide is the owner of the house which he bought from the original daughters. It is in wonderful condition and the owner/guide made us feel like we were visiting him. We could actually sit on the furniture and... 更多
This was an unexpected side trip on our trip to visit working soda fountains in Kansas. When we saw the mansion we had to stop. The mansion is beautiful and the owner is very proud of his home. We had expected to only take 1/2 hour to hour out of our timetable. Two hours later we left the tour early... 更多
The Seelye Mansion was built in 1905 for $55,000. It is a three story home with a widow's walk on the roof. There are eleven bedrooms in this 11,000 square foot home. The home contains all the original furniture and furnishings with many of the pieces over 100 years old. The present owner bought the home from two sisters and... 更多
Previous reviewers have said great things I don't need to repeat, I just wanted to add to the rave reviews. There are some amazing pieces in this house, including a victrola the owner plays a Sousa march on and a 100-year old Steinway piano we got to play. All the light fixtures are original Thomas Edison/GE pieces, and Frank Lloyd... 更多

We began by the owner of the building introducing himself. He lived with the heirs to the mansion for over 10 years and picked their brains until they died at age 91 and older. He has very deep informational stories about everything in the home. He put the home in a foundation so it could be enjoyed for years to... 更多
Had a great experience touring with my family - Terry does an excellent tour, complete with opportunities to interact with the house and learn about the women who made this historic house home.
The house's extravagent features and decor are amazing, but I most loved hearing about Helen and Marion Seeyle. Terry's friendship with the elderly Seeyle ladies and his restoration of their home for the public to enjoy is an interesting story. I'm sure Helen and Marion would be very pleased with the excellent condition of the house and how many people... 更多
Spent a very very enjoyable afternoon with Terry. He made us feel very welcomed and very much at home. The tour and his knowledge of the history of the mansion was outstanding. I would highly recommend a visit.
