After some time inside of the house,
we decided to head back down the stairs, through the lower level and back out into the
A neighbor was kind enough to come over and speak to us for a few
minutes, telling us a little about the history of the house and land. Fortunately, it
seems that the concerned neighbors keep a very close eye on the place, keeping it safe
from intruders and others wishing to do it harm. We were fascinated by the wealth of
history behind the Gulick House. As we headed back toward the truck, ready to head home,
we felt very lucky to have stumbled across it and had the chance to have a look at it.
This is truly a magnificent house and it really deserves to be preserved as the historic
landmark it is. At this moment, the fate of the house remains unknown.
If you are concerned about the proposed demolition, and
would like to voice your opinion about the Gulick House and it's fate, you can send your
comments to the Lawrence
Ledger. Thank you.

your site.... I just ran across your pictures of the Gulick house. Amazing! If the random
pictures of rubble weren't there, it would look like someone just moved out. I'm appalled
that they would even consider tearing that place down. Even though I'm not in your area, I
wanted to send an email to the Ledger to let them know that there is someone in the
Midwest even that can't bear to see that house razed. Unfortunately, they no longer have
links available in their 'contact us' section. I hope someone in your area takes up the
Gulick House cause and stops the demolition. It breaks my heart to see that beauty
