Dalton Gang Robbery History, Kansas

Charles Ball is best known for involvement in the Dalton Gang’s Raid of Condon Bank on October 5, 1892. As the gang arrived to rob the bank that morning, they encountered Cashier Charles Ball, who concocted a story about the safe being on a time lock. Four of the five robbers were eventually fatally wounded by the ensuing gunfire outside the bank. Ball, who was involved in banking, businesses, and real estate dealings during the early 20th century, owned the house until his death in 1922.

The home had been a bed and breakfast and has two guest suites, one on the third floor and one a carriage house/garage apartment. Both contain kitchens and baths.
Three large bedrooms are located on the second floor: a large master suite with ensuite bathroom. This suite includes two cedar-lined closets, one walk-in closet, as well as a smaller closet. Two other bedrooms on the second floor could share the main second floor bath for additional guest rooms. A large atrium is on the second floor that can be utilized by family for games and family time.

The home is walkable and centrally located near the town center, restaurants, coffee shops, and local community college. The family will enjoy the spacious rooms, front and back porches, landscaped gardens, and brick patios. Historic features include: original light fixtures; 2 gas log fireplaces; front & back stairs; wood floors throughout the home; pocket doors; beveled and leaded glass; crown molding; 11' ceilings on the first floor and 9' ceilings on the second floor. The home has a large, 3-season front porch, as well as a screened back porch with plantation perimeter shutters and an Eclipse motorized awning for sunny days. The home has a large, unfinished basement for storage where the radiant heating unit and water heaters are located. It is accessible via the interior, as well as by an exterior steel, bolt door.
