In 1913 The Allen family moved into the house which had been planned for their family with all the conveniences available at the time. In 1986 the James Lindgren family moved into the house where they updated the kitchen and finished the large basement. For the next 15 years the home was a Bed and Breakfast. Most recently the home has been a private residence to the Lindgrens.

History

In 1912 Shubael Allen, grandson of early Clay County and Liberty pioneers, built this house for himself, his wife and daughter. Horace LaPierre, a colorful Kansas City architect of the time created the plans and James Costello, a local builder and lumberyard owner, built the house with great attention to detail. The massive oak woodwork and built-ins would be hard to recreate today.

This house is of historical and architectural significance and is listed in the Dougherty District in the National Register of Historic places.
