Wolf House Museum - Manhattan, Kansas
The Wolf House Museum in Manhattan, Kansas is an interesting two story limestone house was built in 1868, when it was advertised as the German Boarding House. It was operated as a boarding house by the original family until 1938. The house was eventually the home of Max and Lucule Wolf. She gave the house to the Riley County Historical Society in 1982 and the museum opened in 1983.
The Wolf House is presently decorated to be representative of a 1880's home. Particular care has been taken to selection of wallpaper representative of what would have been used in a home of that period.
If the door is locked during the hours the museum is scheduled to be open, the docent may be leading a tour in another part of the building. A visit will probably take less than 30 minutes for most people.
