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 ย 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.





  1. Very pretty! I am a fan of yellow houses as well, and I live in one. Mine does NOT have sweet little trim or a stone foundation, so I must envy this one. It looks like people really do live here, with the lights on the way they are. I’d stop by ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I have a yellow home too! I am lucky to have a porch but like you, not the frilly stuff. A little visit might be an option sometime. You never know ๐Ÿ˜Š I’d love to see if they know more about the homes past residents.
